Your Success is our Goal!

Nonprofit organizations are required to pay for unemployment claims in one of two ways:

1. State Unemployment Insurance Tax (SUI)

2. Reimbursement Financing

There is a safe alternative to paying the UI tax and self-insurance.

First Nonprofit offers two different unemployment insurance programs:

Unemployment Savings Programs

– Lower cost than the SUI Tax

– Fixed annual cost

– An interest-bearing, proprietary reserve account owned by the nonprofit

– Stop loss insurance for each individual member account

– No pooling or shared risk

– Professional claims management

– Representation at all hearings

Bonded Service Program

– Lower cost than the SUI Tax

– Fully insured, guaranteed cost coverage

– Fee set at a percentage of gross payroll

– Experience Credits for positive claims performance

– Multi-year coverage options

– Professional claims management

– Representation at all hearings
