Unemployment Cooperative Pool

Unemployment Cooperative Pool

What We Do

The pool is governed by an advisory board with a representative from each member district. An executive advisory board, comprised of eight members, provides policy and procedural recommendations; reducing risks and making unemployment-related costs manageable for school districts.

The NWESD Unemployment Pool benefits member school districts in many ways:

  • Districts’ individual risks are reduced.
  • Member districts are provided expert claims management services which reduce the district cost of managing claims and claims costs.
  • Member districts receive immediate responses and expert claims management.
  • The cost to individual districts is substantially less than the cost of participating in the State System.

Key services provided by the Unemployment Pool are:

  • Representation through the review, hearing, and appeal processes.
  • Loss prevention training program.
  • Claims management reports.
