Welcome to UC Trust



UC Trust provides unemployment compensation insurance for county employees.

 

 


Created by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania in 1981, the Unemployment Compensation Trust was the first insurance product designed and operated by the Association. The Trust has served counties for 30 years, and has been very successful. A totally self-insured program, the Trust currently provides unemployment compensation insurance for 46 counties, covering more than 26,000 employees.

Member counties receive a full service package, including reviews of all claims filed against the county, quarterly claims statements, training workshops and on-site training.

The CCAP UC Trust also provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for all member counties and their employees, administrated Mazzitti & Sullivan of Harrisburg, PA.

The Trust's claims administrator is Equifax Workforce Solutions (formerly TALX Employer Services).

The Trust's legal counsel is Barbara A. Zemlock of CCAP Insurance Programs. ​​​​​​​

 RISK CONTROL INCENTIVE PROGRAM

 

​Since 2009, the CCAP UC Trust has been offering the Risk Control Incentive Program to recognize the annual loss control activities conducted within each member county and county related entity. Properly implemented risk control activities, such as education, updated policies and procedures and timely reporting, can help reduce the costs of unemployment charges before a separation even occurs. Members have the opportunity to earn credits, a maximum of five percent, towards their quarterly contributions to the Trust upon satisfactory completion or implementation of qualified risk control related activities. This document outlines the Trust’s expectations, defining satisfactory completion and implementation.

Members must be in good standing (all quarterly contribution payments received and accounted for) in order to participate in the CCAP UC Trust Risk Control Incentive Program.
