The Fund, governed by county officials, reimburses the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) for unemployment claims paid to former employees of member counties. Counties participating in this program have opted to be a “reimbursing employer” rather than pay the state unemployment payroll tax, generating substantial savings for counties.
Benefits of Membership
Payments to the Fund are based on the annual average of a county's unemployment compensation claims for the past five years.
Peace of mind
The group reimbursing account removes some of the immediate risks and uncertainties related to unemployment by spreading claims costs over a longer period of time.
The right choice for Texas counties
More than 170 of Texas' 254 counties already belong to the Fund and enjoy the benefits and stability membership offers.
Expert management and assistance
Members benefit from the expertise of TAC Human Resources Consultants, and the assistance of Equifax Workforce Solutions claims management specialists in preparation for, and participation in contested claims before the TWC.
Personalized training, offered at no cost, will keep your county on top of proper termination procedures and the record keeping requirements for contested claims eligibility determinations, helping you manage and control your unemployment costs.
