  What’s New?

          All Employers must file a single Quarterly employment
           and wage filing at detail level with DUA:
                ─ Subject: Contributory and Reimbursable
                ─ Non-Subject Employers
          In addition to the detail filing for the fourth quarter 2009
           and adjustments prior to 4th quarter 2009 will require
           filing wages at the employer gross level.
          DUA QUEST will calculate contributions due
          Excess wages no longer need to be tracked
          Out-of-State wage credit
                ─ A manual process will be used to establish this credit
          All Employer Representatives must register with DUA

  Why Does DUA Require Pre and Post 2010
  Filings?

   The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ DUA is the only UI
    Agency that collected Gross Wages, Excess Wages and
    Taxable Wages as the means to determine Contributions Due.
   This Process has been in place for decades.
   All Legacy Data is in this format and drives the calculation of
    employer rates.
   We will change the process beginning in 2010
   We can not alter Q4 2009 since the prior three quarters data
    is already established using the old process.
   Adjustments prior to 2010 have to use the Legacy process as
    well.
   Q4 detail is required because DOR will no longer collect wage
    detail data in Q4. This is required for Benefit claims.

          Application Design is near completion
          Application Testing will begin Feb. 2009
          We are planning full deployment in the
           November/December 2009 Timeframe
