LeadingAge has partnered with the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) since 2002 to help our members better manage their unemployment claims, ensure HR compliance and streamline day-to-day operations.

Providing nonprofits with workforce solutions that reduce costs and strengthen their missions, UST provides its members up to 60% in savings, and offers exclusive access to the following services:

  • Funding Options—includes Self-Funded Reserve and Unemployment Insurance
  • Unemployment Claims Administration Services
  • Expert Unemployment Hearing Representation
  • E-Filing Capabilities for Managing Claims Details
  • Thousands of Downloadable HR Forms, Documents and Templates
  • Live HR Hotline, Employee Handbook Builder and 200+ Online Training Courses
  • Award-Winning Outplacement & Career Transition Services

Whether your primary focus is to protect your assets, to ensure compliance with the latest state regulations, to reduce unemployment costs or to simply allocate more time and money to your key mission initiatives, UST has a solution for you. By evaluating your unemployment claims history, number of employees and tax rate (if not yet reimbursing), UST can help determine which of their programs would best meet your needs.

In 2018 alone, UST identified $3,871,356 in potential unemployment claims cost savings for 138 eligible nonprofits.


“I am spending about a 1/3 of what I was spending in the Indiana State system. Would do this again in a second! Would encourage others to do this as well - they just need someone to call and talk about it with."

Todd Payne

HR Director at Westminster Village

"UST has helped us gain control of our unemployment costs, on time responses and assistance on claims when needed. Gold star on cost control!"

Vicki Gregory

Executive Director at Westminster Village

"UST provides us with the tools that help us manage the unemployment process and HR compliance requirements (hearing representation, online reporting, claim administration, etc...).  We're able to reduce costs, streamlining other areas of day-to-day operations, and reallocate our savings and resources elsewhere in LeadingAge that allows us to maintain our focus on what counts most, our mission.” 

Pavel Obgolz

Vice President of Finance at LeadingAge
