Unemployment Services Trust

The Ohio Council has partnered with the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) since 2000 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, contact one of UST's Unemployment Cost Advisors at (888) 249-4788 or visit http://www.chooseust.org/request-a-savings-quote/ to fill out a complimentary Savings Evaluation form.

Not quite ready to fill out a Savings Evaluation or talk to a Cost Advisor? Go to http://www.chooseust.org/webinars/ to sign up for an upcoming webinar and learn more about the alternatives available to 501(c)(3) agencies.

Legal Consultation Services Program

The Ohio Council and the law firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP (Vorys) have agreed to collaborate on a program which will provide members with a legal consultation services program. This member benefit will provide members with two (2) hours of legal services during a 12-month period, the first hour to be waived by the firm and the second hour paid by the Ohio Council. The Vorys law firm has represented the Ohio Council since 1996 and a number of member organizations. They have developed significant knowledge on many complex and unique issues involving local contracting, Medicaid, state-county-provider issues and others specific to Ohio's publicly managed and privately provided behavioral health system.

While the Vorys firm provides a full array of legal services, we encourage members not to view this as replacement for your own local legal services. The potential importance and value of this legal service benefit and any additional engagement with the Vorys firm would most likely be on issues involving public policy, Medicaid and local contractual relationships. For more information call Suzanne Scrutton, Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, (614) 464-8313, sjscrutton@vorys.com or visit their web site at www.vorys.com.
