Here are a few frequently asked questions – and answers – that will help you better understand how Unemployment Insurance Services can help your business realize tax savings.
What is the advantage of aggressively managing my Unemployment Insurance costs?
Employers who actively pursue an aggressive claims management program and reduce the charges that are assessed to your account can save a significant amount of money. Preventing unemployment claims being charged to your account directly affects your organization’s unemployment tax rate. This lower tax could mean significant savings in tax dollars.
Why should I use an unemployment insurance cost control company like Unemployment Insurance Services?
The employment security system is unique to the labor relations arena. It has its own set of statutes and regulations. These laws and regulations vary from state to state and can be very difficult to follow if you do not deal with it every day. The advantage of using U.I.S.(Unemployment Insurance Services) is that we have a highly experienced and trained staff that deals in this arena every day. We use this experience and knowledge to represent your organization’s position in the best possible manner. By utilizing this expertise, we prevent claims from being charged to your account, thus significantly reducing your tax liability.
What separates UIS from other cost control companies?
Our service is based on our fundamental service goals. We want to save you time and tax dollars, while providing your management team with unparalleled customer service. We have made a concerted effort to focus on customer service and maintain the highest level of expertise in our claims management department. It is our philosophy to treat each claim as a unique event and to tailor our response to correspond to the circumstances of the separation from work. We believe in having a single point of contact for each of our clients, so that the process is seamless and we process claims in a timely and comprehensive manner. Many of our clients view their individual claims representative as a valued member of their own internal human resource team.
How much can I expect to save?
The savings begins automatically when we remove the burden of handling the actual claim from your staff. The savings continues as we prevent claims from being assessed to your account. Each claim can cost an employer from between $6,000 and $13,000. As we prevent each of these claims from being charged to your account, this has a positive effect on your unemployment tax account. This long term savings is a cumulative result that is realized in the reduced tax rates that your organization will experience.
Do you provide online reporting?
Yes. Our database program was designed with ease and security in mind. Not only will you be able to view your organization’s claim information, but you can also respond and submit claim information without ever leaving our secured web-portal. We offer the ability to view “live” any individual claim allowing our clients to track a specific claimant as it progresses through the system. We also offer detailed reports and custom reports upon the request of the employer.
