After over 9 years of implementation (2009-2018), the unemployment insurance (UI) policy in Vietnam has increasingly confirmed the role of a social policy contributing to preventing and overcoming the consequences of unemployment, with more than 11.9 million participants. However, the coverage of UI in the labor force in Vietnam is still very low (only 21.82%), the status of UI cheating, UI debts remain frequent, which requires state management of UI to be strengthened. This paper evaluates the results of UI, analyzes the inadequacies in state management of UI over the past time and proposes some solutions to resolve those inadequacies, contributing to improve the efficiency of UI policy in Vietnam.
