“We value the hard work of Minnesota’s frontline workers, and this payment is just a small token of our appreciation for the sacrifices they’ve made to protect the health of Minnesotans,” said Senator Wiklund. “The best way to get the most up-to-date information about how to get this payment is to sign up at I encourage eligible workers to sign up as soon as possible to guarantee that they get the payment they deserve.”

The legislation invests $500 million for bonus payments to 600,000 frontline workers, including health care workers, first responders, child care providers, food service and retail workers, and more. The legislation also includes a measure to replenish the state’s Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, preventing a tax increase on businesses.

Workers will have 45 days to apply once the application process opens.
