Apply For Minnesota Unemployment

Unemployed workers can apply for benefits using our online application (which is self-service). The online system here allows applicants to manage their insurance compensation payments, as well as file initial MN claims.

It is highly recommended to apply for as soon as you become unemployed. Claimants who wait to file can have their benefits reduced substantially. Large loss of hours can make you eligible for benefits, in addition to a complete loss of a job.
