Utah Unemployment Insurance provides compensation to persons who are unemployed through no fault of their own and are able and available for and actively seeking work.


Utah Unemployment Insurance is administered by Employment and Training Administration (ETA).

Program Requirements:

To be eligible, a person must have worked during the first four of the last five calendar quarters (or the last four calendar quarters) with a minimum of $3200 earned in covered employment, must have earned wages in two or more calendar quarters of the base period, and the total base period wages must be 1.5 times the wages earned in the highest quarter. Separation from most recent employment must be due to reduction in force, discharge not for just cause, or quit for good cause (or not contrary to equity and good conscience). The claimant must meet the definition of being unemployed, not have disqualifying earnings (including accrued vacation or vacation pay), be actively seeking work, and be able and available for full-time work.
