Alaska is what's referred to as a client-reporting state for unemployment insurance. Justworks needs your company’s information to report unemployment taxes under your unemployment account.
In order to report, Justworks needs your Employment Security Tax rate and account number. You'll also need to grant Justworks Third Party Admin (TPA) or Power of Attorney (POA) access. You can do so by logging in to your myAlaska account via the Dept. of Labor website.
Once your MyAlaska account is created, please register for an Employment Security Tax account and provide Justworks with the account number and tax rate.
We don't have an Unemployment Account, what do we do?
Please begin the registration process by signing up for MyAlaska. The agency will send you an email with instructions to verify your MyAlaska account. You must follow the instructions within 24 hours. If you do not receive an email, contact the MyAlaska Help Center at one of the following numbers:
- In Anchorage: 907-269-6311 option 1
- In Fairbanks: 907-451-5911 option 1
- In Juneau: 907-465-5211 option 1
Once your MyAlaska account is created, please register for an Employment Security Tax account here and provide us with account number and tax rate.
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
