Premiums are contributions paid by Colorado employers to help protect the economy. Each year, we determine premium rates for employers based on a number of factors, including the amount of money already paid and unemployment benefit payments made to former employees.
Your premium and wage reports are due quarterly.
- April 30: Quarter 1 reports are due for wages paid in January, February, March.
- July 31: Quarter 2 reports are due for wages paid in April, May, June.
- October 31: Quarter 3 reports are due for wages paid in July, August, September.
- January 31: Quarter 4 reports are due for wages paid in October, November, December.
Report your wages online or via FTP. As of September 14, 2018, we began the process of moving all employers to electronic methods of filing wage reports. If you are still filing wage reports by paper, you will need to take steps to file your wage reports online or by FTP.
File both Wage and Premium Reports, pay premiums, and view your account status, balances and rates through MyUI Employer.
