Hot Savings for New Jersey Employers
August Deadline to Reduce SUI Contribution Rates

Did you check your NJ SUI rates?
Over the last few weeks, all New Jersey employers received a Notice of Employer Contribution Rates. This is not a bill, but rather a summary of the manner in which the NJ Department of Labor calculates the employer contribution rate for unemployment and disability. This form enables you to determine whether a voluntary contribution would save you money in the subsequent year.

Can I reduce the NJ SUI rate?
A voluntary contribution increases the reserve balance and may reduce your contribution rate. Each employer should calculate the amount of the voluntary contribution required to reduce the rate. The required voluntary payment should be compared to the savings realized from a lower rate. The unemployment expense is a substantial component of your labor cost. Business owners should give it careful attention. If you wish to make a voluntary contribution to your reserve balance you only have 30 days from the notification date (July 27, 2016) to do so. We recommend that you verify all the NJ DOL calculations including the amount of the employer contributions and the benefits charged to your account. Report any discrepancies to the NJ Dept. of Labor.

By making a voluntary payment, employers may reduce the NJ SUI rate for the coming year. Please be aware that this payment increases your reserve balance and helps reduce the NJ SUI rate in future years as well.

If you would like assistance in determining if a voluntary contribution will save you money, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately. We will provide you with an illustration of the benefits which you stand to reap from making such a contribution. Within the 30 day period you will be able to weigh the considerations and act accordingly.
