Nonprofit Organization Unemployment | UST - UST
UST Support Overview
Workforce Solutions for Nonprofits with Stable Operating Funds
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 Support is an ideal option for nonprofits with their own well-managed cash reserves and investment strategies, who want to maintain control of their organization's funding and cash flow strategies.

Claims Management & Administration
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.
Appeal Hearings Representation
Our hearing representatives are well-versed in state-specific laws and regulations. They help nonprofits navigate complex claim questions, prepare documentation and testimony, attend all hearings with the organization, and even deliver opening and closing statements to assist nonprofits in winning unemployment appeal hearings when benefits aren’t warranted.
Professional Actuarial Forecasting
For reimbursing participants, our professional actuarial services assist participating members in projecting their unemployment benefit claims costs based on proprietary custom designed models. As Reimbursing employers, members' unemployment claims data is reviewed to create an actuarial projection of expected claims cost.
