CCC (A part of Experian) was recently advised that the Massachusetts DUA will update unemployment tax rates for 2021.  Legislation enacted May 29, 2021, removed COVID-related charges from the solvency fund and charged them to a newly created account called the COVID-19 Employer Relief Account.  This change caused the 2021 Solvency Rate to decrease from 9.23% t0 1.12%.  The notification went on to say that employers that were charged a solvency assessment on their 2021 rate notice will be credited back a portion of the solvency assessment to their account’s experience rating reserve balance resulting in an adjusted 2021 rate.

Experience-rated employers will be charged a quarterly COVID-19 Recovery Assessment to spread out the cost of benefits paid by the UI Trust fund in 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic.  There will be a rate schedule that identifies the assessment assigned for each rate group, equal to 10.50% of an employer’s UI rate.

Revised rates will be available to view on the state portal on or after July 26, 2021.   Contributions for the first and second quarters, 2021 are due on or before 3:00 pm EST on August 31, 2021.  If you have additional questions regarding this announcement or any unemployment tax-related issue, please reach out to your CCC Tax Analyst.
