Stimulus Payments, Unemployment Income and Financial Help

On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Continued Assistance Act), was signed into law. 

Minnesotans may receive payments through the Continued Assistance Act in the form of an individual recovery tax credit rebate and/or supplemental federal unemployment compensation. The supplemental unemployment benefit is available as a $300/week payment (Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation or FPUC), and an additional $100/week payment for some recipients (Mixed Earners Unemployment Compensation or MEUC), to Minnesotans receiving regular or extended state unemployment benefits.

If you received unemployment income for at least one week in 2021, you may qualify for a $0 premium plan.
