Overview: State unemployment insurance, or SUI, is a tax-funded program by employers to give short-term benefits to workers who have lost their job. This tax is required by state and federal law. Unemployed workers receive these benefits when they're looking for a new job.
Important: SUI rate changes typically come out between November and March. If your business has a rate change, you must inform us before we file your Q1 taxes in April.
