"We’ve experienced two claims in the past 10 years and in both cases, UST representatives provided excellent communication and support resulting in the denial of both claims.  We do not employee a human resource staff member so UST’s customer support is crucial.  Also, UST allows us to accrue our payments over time resulting in an experience refund on three separate occasions in the past ten years. " Kathy List, CEO, Big Brothers, Big Sisters of GC

"Being part of UST has kept the claims process very easy for us since they manage it all.  We only fill out a questionnaire when someone makes a claim and they handle the rest.  The rate we pay has been very, very low as well, and we have gotten these refunds twice now that have helped us with funding needs since they are unrestricted dollars for us."  Shari Patrick, CFO Santa Maria Community Services

Evaluate Your Nonprofit’s Taxes, Safeguard Your Funding

As a nonprofit leader, you rely on your staff to stretch resources to meet your mission’s objectives. But with rising operating costs, maintaining cash flow is an ongoing concern for employers. Couldn’t you use some relief? 

As a 501(c)(3), when your organization has an unemployment claim, you are allowed by federal law to pay only for the unemployment benefits claimed by your former  employees, instead of state taxes. This allows you to continue to provide unemployment benefits, without sharing in the excess costs of state unemployment tax systems that have high administrative fees and use your funds to subsidize employers with high turnover.

Essentially you put more money back into your nonprofit’s resources.

Leadership Council for Nonprofits has partnered with the Unemployment Services Trust (UST)  since 2007. UST helps organizations nationwide exercise this option effectively while reducing overall costs through expert claims management, asset protection and cash flow improvements.

From e-filing unemployment claim reports to representing you at claim hearings—UST can help organizations like yours save money and simplify your job.

Just last year, UST helped more than 2,100 nonprofits save $28,316,109.96 in unemployment claims costs… plus an additional $1,652,775.51 in recovered state errors.
