Minnesotans are no longer able to receive increased federal unemployment benefits. Several programs enacted because of the pandemic ended on Saturday. This includes Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and the additional three-hundred-dollars per week for claimants. Officials with the Department of Employment and Economic Development say they are offering career assistance for those who have been using these benefits.
