How The Plan Works
Our informational resources are designed for one-to-one human communication with a minimal use of automated technology.
The most effective way to reduce the cost of unemployment claims is through organization-wide education and training. When you utilize the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan, you receive unlimited access to our entire suite of education services.
These services are based upon a one-on-one relationship. We always strive to offer real-time human interaction and minimize the use of password-protected resource sites, automated programs or impersonal call centers.
Web-based Council Training
We offer more than 25 instructor-led, web-based training sessions per year. Working with the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan provides every supervisor and every HR professional in your organization unlimited access to our training opportunities.
Practiced Unemployment Consultation
Do you want to learn the ins and outs of the unemployment bureaucracy in your state? We didn’t think so. That’s why we have in-house experts to answer your questions and provide immediate education. Often times we know more than your state bureaucrat.
Our programs are designed to not only safeguard our councils but save them money as well.
Working with the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan is not just about the strategic health of our councils but also about their dollars and cents. Councils participate because it is a money saving exercise. The Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan helps you hold on to those funding dollars that you have worked so hard to obtain.
A very important part of being a self-insurer is maintaining smart control over your cash flow. That is why the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan maintains an unemployment claims savings account for your future unemployment claims and facilitates a group purchasing program to reduce the cost of completing your missions.
All of councils in the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan have an individually owned savings account that unemployment claims are paid from. This way there is no risk pool (like with the state) and you are able to build up protected reserves for future layoffs at a speed you can afford.
Becoming a reimbursing employer is a strategic decision. Doing so with the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan helps insure our organizations are saving budget dollars.
We’ve taken every precaution, and designed a few news ones, to protect you in every way.
The Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan has been providing an unemployment savings program for councils since 1995.
If you’re looking at an unemployment savings program, here are some questions you ought to be asking about the security of your savings account:
Is your account private?
All Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan accounts have a private reserve from which your unemployment claims are paid. This account is not shared in a pool. Your money is used only to pay your organization’s unique bills.
Who watches over your money?
501(c) Services is the third party administrator for the Boy Scout Unemployment Plan and meet quarterly with the Director of Benefit and Retirement to review all aspects of the plan.
Are you insured against large unemployment charges?
Only the Boy Scouts Unemployment Plan provides industry-leading stop loss insurance from an A+ rated carrier. Unlike other unemployment insurance programs, your money is at less risk from large unforeseen claims. You are protected against such things.
As you can see, we’ve thought of everything. Your success as individual councils is very important – so we have designed the program to cover every need.
