In an effort to protect American citizens who lose their jobs due to no fault of their own, the Federal-State Unemployment Insurance Program was created. This program offers unemployment benefits to eligible workers, giving them a temporary source of financial assistance to help them maintain their quality of life and stay up-to-date on their financial obligations as they search for new employment opportunities.

Those benefits are funded by a state unemployment tax levied against all employers. The rate each employer pays for that tax will range between 1.5 and 6.2 percent, depending on the amount of money they are paying their staff and the number of unemployment claims filed by that employer’s previous employees.

There are, however, some very notable exceptions. Under the Unemployment Insurance Code, government entities, nonprofits, and tribal organizations can choose to finance these benefits via a method other than the standard state unemployment insurance tax.

Specifically, instead of making the required contributions, they have the option to finance their liability for unemployment compensation benefits by purchasing state unemployment insurance coverage. With this type of policy, these employers can find the most cost-effective way to fulfill their obligation to the state government and to their employees. This ensures that their staff is still protected with unemployment benefits, but the government entity, nonprofit, or tribal organization is not compromised by the cost of covering them.
