Spotlight on Member Benefits: Unemployment Cost Savings from UST

March 30, 2017


If your nonprofit is a 501c3 and you have 10 or more full-time employees, be sure to check out the Unemployment Services Trust (UST), a valued partner since 2010. As allowed by Federal law, UST helps nonprofits exercise their unique unemployment tax alternative in a safe, cost-effective way. With exclusive access to a robust list of resources — including expert claims advice, e-Filing capabilities, a live HR hotline, and outplacement services — UST members can allocate more time and money to the communities they serve.

Last year alone, more than 2,100 program participants:

* Saved $29.9 million on unemployment claims costs

* Utilized over $1 million in HR services… at no additional cost

* Won 84% of protestable unemployment claims

To get a more extensive preview of UST’s benefits, as well as the opportunity to identify any hidden savings, be on the lookout for UST’s upcoming mailing, which will be hitting your mailbox in mid-April. If you don’t want to wait to find out whether you’re overpaying for unemployment taxes, you can fill out the Unemployment Cost Analysis form online or call UST directly at 888-249-4788.
