First Nonprofit, a wholly owned subsidiary of Amynta Group, is pleased to announce a new unemployment services partnership with Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association (MIIA) and Unemployment Tax Management Corporation (UTMC) . The MIIA Unemployment Services Program (MIIA USP) will be offered initially to all MIIA members participating in the MIIA Workers Compensation Program. MIIA USP is a full-service program that will include unemployment risk management and HR training, unemployment claims management, stop loss insurance options, fund management and payment processing. MIIA will be expanding program access to all eligible members of MIIA later in 2022 following the MIIA USP launch this July.
FNP is a leading provider of unemployment insurance funding alternatives for nonprofit, governmental and tribal employers across the country serving more than 2000 employer accounts. “We are excited to join MIIA and UTMC to expand the scope of the MIIA Workers Comp Program and offer MIIA WC Program members an innovative, full-service UI program”, said Mario Poretto, President & CEO of First Nonprofit. “Since we began discussing the scope of the program and its launch with the fine leadership teams at MIIA and UTMC, there has been a keen commitment to continuous service improvement and meeting the service needs of the cities and towns of the Commonwealth of MA.”
MIIA, established by the Massachusetts Municipal Association in 1982, provides risk management and property, liability, workers compensation and group health coverage and services to over 400 municipalities and governmental entities in Massachusetts. “The MIIA team is always looking for creative, cost-effective services that will enable its members to focus on the significant demands of managing local government. We are confident that this unemployment services partnership with FNP and UTMC will deliver best-in-class service to MIIA members based on their long-established track records as leaders in the unemployment services industry” said Stan Corcoran, Executive Vice President of MIIA.
The FNP Program Team will work closely and locally with MIIA and UTMC staff. Regional Manager, Julie Wallace Ferdinando, will be coordinating FNP efforts and helping MIIA USP staff and members understand the role FNP will play and how the MIIA USP offers services that can help improve results and support net savings for members of MIIA. Julie said, “Our account services and operations teams are looking forward to working with MIIA staff and MIIA USP members to address members’ unemployment service needs and coordinate with other aligned risks covered by MIIA programs.”
First Nonprofit has saved us so much money over the state’s program. We had one little glitch with the state recently and we contacted FNP immediately. FNP staff called us back immediately and moved to remedy the problem.
First Nonprofit has been a great partner. They have helped us saved hundreds of thousands of dollars! They have awesome resources for our nonprofit organization. Thanks for the partnership.
Life is certainly busy these days but having business partners like First Nonprofit has made some of the process hassle free. We have worked with this team for years. When we changed payroll systems, they outlined every step. I think this team is terrific and I know they get the job done! Thank you, Cruz, to all the team at FNP.
FNP has helped our agency to save thousands of dollars every year on our unemployment coverage. The service is phenomenal, and we are thankful to their team as our partner. My experience working with Marshall on the advocacy around UE for nonprofits was also a highlight as someone who teaches advocacy and lobbying for nonprofits. Really, your whole team is top shelf, so thank YOU!
Chicago Children’s Theatre has greatly benefited from our partnership with First Nonprofit, and I have always enjoyed working with the staff on our filings and any complicated questions. I would not hesitate to recommend First Nonprofit to fellow nonprofits. We’re very happy customers.
FNP is a great resource for Daniel Kids. To have a TPA that we can count on to take point on not only managing our unemployment claims, but to support and guide any protest hearing, is invaluable. All the professional support staff we have worked with have been excellent, very knowledgeable and responsive. We are grateful for the help and support, thank you.
When I first began in my position at my organization, I hadn’t had experience working with a company like FNP. The staff was so patient and helpful in helping to explain the benefits of First Nonprofit. Anytime I reach out with a question I receive a quick, clear, and thorough response. I’m so thankful that we decided to partner with FNP. Their excellence in customer service, coupled with their variety of packages frees us up to truly serve our staff and community with a peace of mind knowing that our organization is protected against unanticipated unemployment insurance expenses.
First Nonprofit gets an A+ in my book. You are so easy to work with & very knowledgeable! Whether it is my quarterly correspondence with Kim or my random interactions with Dawn about a bond … I am so pleased that I get to work with such a helpful company. Thank you!
