Learn About First Nonprofit

Nonprofits typically have fewer unemployment claims than the private sector; therefore, they often subsidize the state unemployment fund by paying more than necessary. Federal and state laws allow 501(c)(3) organizations to reimburse the state unemployment fund, rather than pay the SUI tax in advance of having actual claims. FNP’s unemployment programs may well reduce your unemployment costs if you currently participate in the state tax system and can provide you with a safety net if you have already chosen the reimbursable option.

Participation in FNP programs provides:
•Fixed annual cost for budgetary certainty
•Multiple options for different coverage levels specific to CAP agency needs
•Knowledgeable team of unemployment specialists to handle all your UI needs
•Expert claims representation for unemployment hearings and audits
•Access to training and services that can decrease the number of invalid unemployment claims
•No pooling or shared risk

We encourage you to watch this informative webinar. A quote from FNP is free with no obligation to join their program, so you have nothing to lose! As an added bonus, Community Action Agencies receive a 20% discount on the one-time enrollment fee.
