Learn About Unemployment Taxes and Benefits

Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits is temporary income for workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own and who are either looking for another job, have definite recall to their jobs within 6 weeks of the last day worked, or are in approved training. In Georgia, employers pay the entire cost of unemployment insurance benefits. Contributory employers pay taxes at a specified rate on a quarterly basis. Governmental and nonprofit organizations may elect the contributory method or may choose to reimburse the department for benefits paid to former employees.
