UST Solutions 2
Reduce Unemployment and HR Liability
With the UST Trust solution, we provide an alternative to paying state unemployment taxes for 501(c)(3) nonprofits with 10 or more employees.
Unemployment claims are unavoidable. But you can still protect your assets and cashflow from unexpected volatility as reimbursing employer through UST.
Our actuarial model helps predict claims activity so funds are available when you need them most. And with convenient, quarterly deposits, you can budget accordingly. Unlike traditional insurance or taxes, the funds deposited with UST remain the asset of your organization and can help offset your entire cost of membership.
UST regularly reviews member accounts for excess funding. Beginning in your third year of participation, any excess funds identified are refunded to your organization. You can request a check or use the funds as a credit against future deposits.
Workforce Solutions for Nonprofits with Stable Operating Funds
The UST Support is a solution designed for nonprofits that have confidence in their ability to manage their cash reserves and investment strategies.
UST Support provides many of the same resources and benefits as the UST Trust solution, with a few significant distinctions. Participants in this program have access to UST’s most popular nonprofit organization unemployment and HR management tools, but do NOT deposit funds into a UST-managed reserve. This offers organizations more control over their protection, deficit funding, and bond placement.
UST makes nonprofit unemployment benefits management and administration a worry-free process. From e-filing claims of unemployment for nonprofit employees to representation at a claims hearing protest, our unemployment experts provide nonprofits often needed back office support. Nonprofits have 24/7 access to UST’s state-of-the-art online claims dashboard, and can view their claim status, pending to-do items and reports, all at the click of a button.
