Unemployment Compensation Insurance Pool Cooperative

Effective January 1, 1978, school districts became responsible for financing the unemployment benefits for their eligible employees.  In order to provide for group insurance and claims control, a cooperative was formed as a separate legal entity in accordance with Chapter 39.34.030 RCW.  Olympic ESD 114 is responsible to administer the cooperative on behalf of the member districts.

A cooperative advisory board consisting of the superintendent or designee of each member district was created.  The purpose of the board is to monitor the performance of the cooperative agreement, insure the cooperative is operated according to the By-Laws, and provide advice on matters relating to this agreement to Olympic ESD 114.  The Board approves the rate of assessment.

The rate of assessment for each calendar year is based on prior year actual cost, by district, expressed as a percentage of taxable wages.  The cooperative has contracted with Equifax to provide for claims management services.

For questions regarding the unemployment cooperative, please contact Nicole Roel, nroel@oesd114.org, phone 360-478-6897.
