Attention Reimbursing Employers

Reimbursing Employer Quarterly Statement of Benefit Charges for 1st Quarter 2020 are to be mailed 6/12/2020.  We had delayed the statements due to the provision passed in the Cares Act.  The benefit charges shown on this statement were paid to former employees and charged to your account from January 1, 2020 through March 31, 2020.  The Cares Act provides for 50% reimbursement of charges for all claims from March 13th, 2020 to December 31, 2020 after payment in full of these charges.  The statement will show the amount that is affected per the CARES Act and will be credited to the employer’s account once the statement is paid in full, which is a requirement by the CARES Act.
