MS Code § 71-5-455 (2016) What's This?

Monies shall be requisitioned from this state's account in the Unemployment Trust Fund solely for the payment of benefits and in accordance with regulations prescribed by the department, except that monies credited to this state's account pursuant to Section 903 of the Social Security Act, as amended, shall be used exclusively as provided in Section 71-5-457. No monies in the Unemployment Compensation Fund shall be used to pay interest on any funds that might be borrowed for the purposes of this chapter, but any such interest that might be due shall be paid from other sources. The department shall from time to time requisition from the Unemployment Trust Fund such amounts, not exceeding the amount standing to this state's account therein, as it deems necessary for the payment of benefits for a reasonable future period. Such sums shall be immediately deposited by the department in some bank within this state in an account to be known as the "benefit payment account," which shall be under the control of the department and on which said benefit payment account the department or its duly authorized representative is authorized to draw and issue its checks in payment of benefits to individuals entitled thereto under this chapter. Expenditures of such monies in the benefit account and benefit payment account and refunds from the clearing account shall not be subject to any provisions of law requiring specific appropriations or other formal release by state officers of money in their custody. All warrants shall bear the signature of the department's duly authorized agent for that purpose.

The department shall be subject to the applicable laws pertaining to security of public fund deposits as set forth in Sections 27-105-5 and 27-105-6.
