Unemployment Compensation (UC) provides an income to individuals who become unemployed through no fault of their own. UC benefits are paid, for a limited time, to individuals who are able and available for suitable work but continue to be unemployed while looking for another job.
The UC Law requires covered employers to make contributions into the UC Trust Fund, which acts as a pooled reserve of funding to pay benefits to individuals covered by the UC program. If you have questions regarding your business’ Unemployment Compensation (UC) Tax and account number, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry’s (DLI)’s Employer UC FAQ page or Contact Us.
