State unemployment insurance (SUI)

Just because SUI is mandatory doesn’t mean it has to be costly

Mandatory insurance like SUI can quickly get complicated. It’s easy to find yourself lost in questions about your state’s eligibility requirements, benefit amounts, and how long they’re available within federal guidelines. And you better not make a mistake — penalties cost more than just your time and effort.
