Unemployment Services

Save 40% or more on claims costs

Evolving regulations, rising costs, and strained budgets make it tough to manage your unemployment claims in-house. And it’s never been more important to keep those costs down and identify every savings opportunity.

That’s why businesses trust UC Alternative to manage their unemployment claims.

We don’t just process unemployment claims; we take ownership of this function to save you as much as possible. Our experts uncover the true cost of your unemployment claims, then apply proven approaches to win more claims upfront and avoid costly hearings. We even strive to achieve the lowest UI tax rate possible for your industry and state. And because we’re paid for performance—not volume—we have a strong incentive to optimize your savings.

By combining deep expertise, proven processes, advanced technology, and exceptional service, our outsourced unemployment cost reduction programs capture more savings while freeing you from the administrative burden of managing claims.

With UC Alternative as your verification provider, you’ll gain confidence that each request is handled quickly and accurately.
