Unemployment Insurance and COVID-19 Assessment Rates in Massachusetts

In 2021, the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance adjusted the unemployment insurance (UI) tax rate to include a new COVID-specific employer charge, the COVID-19 Recovery Assessment. 

The rates for both MA UI tax and the COVID-19  Recovery Assessment tax are combined and entered into the UI rate field in Zenefits. 

If you have any questions regarding these taxes, please contact the agency directly.
More information regarding these changes, including FAQs, is available on the MA DUA COVID-19 Recovery Assessment page.
