The Alaska Unemployment Insurance (UI) program is a state-run program that provides temporary financial assistance to eligible workers who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. The program is funded through taxes paid by employers, and benefits are administered by the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

To be eligible for UI benefits in Alaska, an individual must have earned a certain amount of wages during a specific period of time, be unemployed through no fault of their own, be available and willing to work, and actively seek work. Individuals must also meet ongoing eligibility requirements, such as filing weekly claims and reporting any income earned during the week.
