SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Unemployment Services Trust (UST) today announced that 95 percent of its program participants would recommend UST to their fellow nonprofits for the program's extensive cost-saving resources. Having recently added outplacement services to its list of member benefits as well as increasing education-based webinar opportunities, UST attributes this high net promoter score to its evolving customer service model.
Under federal law, 501(c)(3) employers have the exclusive ability to opt out of their state's unemployment tax system and instead pay only for the unemployment benefits claimed by former employees. UST helps nonprofits exercise this unique tax exemption status in a safe and cost-effective manner by delivering the latest workforce solutions that ensure HR compliance, reduce cumbersome paperwork tasks and mitigate unemployment claims overpayments.
"We are constantly fine-tuning the UST program to address the sector's current pain points and shifting needs in managing HR and unemployment liability," said Donna Groh, Executive Director of UST. "We couldn't be more pleased to know the vast majority of our membership is very satisfied with our service, and honored that they would recommend our program to their peers."
UST offers an extensive list of member benefits, which includes a live HR hotline, online employee handbook builder, 100% representation at unemployment claims hearings and e-Filing capabilities—helping to streamline day-to-day tasks and keep more money in the nonprofit community.
Most nonprofits have a November 30th state deadline to opt out of the unemployment tax system for 2017. UST encourages 501(c)(3) organizations, who have yet to benchmark their unemployment costs, to submit a free Unemployment Cost Analysis form by November 15 to find out how they may benefit from the UST program.
Founded by nonprofits for nonprofits, Unemployment Services Trust (UST) provides 501(c)(3)s with a cost-effective alternative to paying state unemployment taxes. UST participants save millions annually through claims management, hearing representation, claim audits, outplacement services, and HR support. Join more than 2,100 nonprofits nationwide and request an Unemployment Cost Analysis at www.ChooseUST.org.
