Recent account updates for taxable and reimbursable employers

Updated on Sept. 27, 2021

Federal pandemic unemployment benefits expired on the week ending Sept. 4, 2021.

 

Reimbursable employers: You might see more benefit charges on your third-quarter billing statement.

You could see on your statement:

  • Higher benefit charges.
    The federal government is no longer paying any benefit charges for former employees receiving regular unemployment benefits or SharedWork benefits. Previously, the federal government paid 75 percent of regular benefits and 100 percent of SharedWork benefits. 

  • More former employees listed.
    Some claimants transferred to regular unemployment benefits when federal pandemic unemployment programs ended.

 

Taxable employers: You might see more benefit charges starting with your third-quarter benefit charging statement.

You could see on your statement:

  • More former employees listed.
    Some claimants transferred to regular unemployment benefits when federal pandemic unemployment programs ended. These additional benefit charges might affect your future tax rate.

  • More benefits charged to your experience rating if you’re enrolled in the SharedWork program.
    Benefits paid to your SharedWork employees again affect your experience rating. The federal government stopped funding those benefits after the week ending Sept. 4.

If you think that any charges are incorrect, you can request a relief of benefit charges. Make that request in eServices or by mailing back the paper statement.

 

Both reimbursable and taxable employers: The unpaid waiting week is back.

Claimants once again have an unpaid waiting week. This change won’t affect your benefit charges. Find out more about the waiting week.
