Unemployment Benefits for Workers

If you’ve lost your job or have had your hours greatly reduced, you may qualify for unemployment benefits.

Need some help staying on your feet while you look for a new job? If you’re out of work and able to work, you may be eligible for temporary income called unemployment insurance (UI). If you qualify, you receive weekly payments to help cover your living expenses while you search for new employment. The amount you receive is based on what you were paid in the last year. The UI program for Massachusetts is managed by the Department of Unemployment Assistance.
