Trust Fund Balances 2011

State governments levy payroll taxes on employers to pay for unemployment insurance benefits. These taxes, calculated on state financing formulas and an employer's history of claims, are deposited into the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund. Each state, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, has its own account within the Trust Fund.

Below is a chart of state unemployment trust fund balances. This chart is updated monthly, based on figures from the U.S. Dept. of Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt. See also NCSL's chart on State Unemployment Trust Fund Loans, for those states that are borrowing from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund to cover benefits.
