account benefit Used wages

The Minnesota Unemployment Insurance Program uses the first four of the last five calendar quarters, before the effective date of your application, as your base period.


Your benefits are based on the amount of gross wages paid to you from all employers during a recent 52-week (one year) period of time. This is called your base period. Commissions, bonuses, overtime, vacation pay, severance pay (depending on timing), and wages earned in other states are included. Earnings from self-employment are not included.
