Unemployment Solutions Background

Unemployment Programs

Unemployment Savings Program

Place a fixed budget into your organization’s interest-bearing, proprietary reserve account and save thousands of dollars compared to paying State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) tax.


Bonded Service Program

Take the risk out of reimbursing the state for your unemployment claims with a fixed cost program whose fee is based on your personal employment profile – no shared risk or shared expenses.


Excess Loss

If you have reimbursement financing but want to protect against excessively high claims due to mass layoffs or grand loss, Excess Loss insurance can help limit your liability.


Unemployment Surety Bonds

Some states require employers to post collateral with a governmental agency to reimburse directly. Our bonds allow you to opt out of the state tax system and save considerable sums.
