Unemployment Compensation
National Summary
Unemployment compensation is regulated by the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) and jointly administered by federal and state authorities. Under the FUTA, the individual states are free to set their own limits on weekly benefit amounts, unemployment tax rates, taxable wage bases, and unemployment eligibility and disqualification requirements. Unemployment benefits are financed by a tax on a certain portion of wages paid to employees. This taxable wage base varies from state to state.
