With unemployment claims being so unpredictable, taking the time to review your organization’s unemployment costs and funding options is vital to maintaining the welfare of your nonprofit, employees, and mission. It’s crucial to do your due diligence today to ensure financial security in advance of an economic downturn.

As a Preferred Trusted Partner of the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities since 2014, the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) offers nonprofits an extensive variety of cost-saving services including administrative support, unemployment insurance, state-specific claims advice, a live human resources hotline, online employee training courses, e-filing capabilities, outplacement services, and more.

Just last year, UST’s 2,200+ program participants saved more than $27.8 million on unemployment claims costs, and used over $1 million in human resources services at no additional cost.

For 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.
