Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund

This report provides information on Washington state’s employer contributions, benefits and UI trust fund current and projected balances. The Employment Security Department’s unemployment trust fund projections are reviewed and adjusted three times a year (June, September and November). The adjustments are made by changing several variables in the trust fund model. The variables are sourced from the state’s Economic and Revenue Forecast Council’s (ERFC) economic forecast which uses ERFC assumptions and actual unemployment insurance tax and benefit data.
