Bonus Pay for MN Frontline Workers

We recently received notice from the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (MN DLI) regarding bonus pay for COVID-19 frontline workers.  We thought it would be helpful to share and, although it may not apply directly to you, it may for your family members or friends.

The notice states “To thank those Minnesotans who worked on the frontlines during the COVID-19 peacetime emergency, Gov. Tim Walz signed Frontline Worker Payments into law April 29, 2022, enabling those workers to apply for Frontline Worker Pay.”

We received two information sheets provided by the MN DLI. The first contains information to help determine eligibility. The second provides details on the application process after determining eligibility.

The state is anticipating applications will be taken June 8 through July 22.  If you are interested in applying or would like more information, please visit
