Members Only Free, Members-only Webinar: Federal and State Updates on Unemployment Insurance (UI)


The Providers’ Council’s Endorsed Vendor Unemployment Tax Management Corporation (UTMC) is pleased to again join us to provide crucial updates and guidance on changes to unemployment law, both at the federal and state levels.


Many agencies are facing significant increases in UI expenses this year. Ensuring that your agency is operating under the most cost effective method and strategizing for changes in the unemployment insurance space are critical to keeping costs down and mitigating the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.


In this webinar, attendees will get a refresher of the tax rated vs. self-insured unemployment insurance methods, learn what financial savings switching methods could provide your agency, and hear about changes in the unemployment insurance realm that are impacting each model. Attendees will also gain important updates about the months and years to come, including when reimbursable bills are due and  the dramatic increases in tax rates for 2021.  UTMC will also provide updates and guidance regarding fraudulent claims, claims commonly charged to employers in error and how to ensure that your agency is credited for unwarranted charges.


There will be a live Q&A segment at the end of this webinar.


In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • What changes have been made to federal and state unemployment laws;
  • What the potential impact will be on both self-insured and fully-insured providers;
  • Updates on upcoming bills and the state’s new Solvency Assessment rate; and
  • How to best mitigate the impact and cost of unemployment.
