State Unemployment Trust Fund Balances 2009-2014

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 are links to charts of state unemployment trust fund monthly balances for 2009 to 2014. These charts were prepared using figures from the U.S. Dept. of Treasury, Bureau of the Public Debt. Current year balances are also available. 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.
