Unemployment Compensation Insurance (UCI) is an employer-paid insurance
program to assist workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.
It provides temporary financial assistance to qualified individuals while
they search for other work.
The US Congress passed legislation in 1970 requiring states to cover
employees of state hospitals and state institutions of higher education
under their respective unemployment insurance acts. In 1971, the Texas
Legislature passed legislation to provide unemployment compensation insurance
coverage for all states employees. Following this legislation, The University of Texas System (the UT System)
UCI program was established.
In accordance with The Board of Regents Rules and Regulations, it is the responsibility of the UT System Office of
Risk Management (ORM) to administer an UCI program and fund to pay claims.
As a reimbursing employer, the UT System reimburses the State Unemployment Trust
Fund for any claims paid by the Texas
Workforce Commission (TWC) to former employees of the UT System in
lieu of paying UCI taxes. ORM reimburses TWC on a quarterly basis and
monitors the monthly receipt of UCI premiums from the UT System Institutions.
