Participating Companies


The Connecticut Association of Nonprofits has partnered with the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) for over 30 years to help our members lower the cost of unemployment at their nonprofit. Founded by nonprofits for nonprofits, UST is a grantor Trust, owned by its members, that has spent the past 30 years helping members carefully manage their claims costs through ongoing education, expert claims management, and reserve building.
Nonprofits have the exclusive opportunity to take advantage of a federal law that lets them opt out of the state unemployment tax and only pay the dollar-for-dollar costs of benefits paid to their former employees. For organizations with 10 or more employees, this can mean thousands of dollars in savings. For more information fill out a complimentary Savings Evaluation here.
