Iowa 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, please send Justworks your Unemployment Account Number and Unemployment Tax Rate. If you don't have an Unemployment Account, please open one here. It should not take more than 20 minutes.
You will also need to grant Justworks Third Party Admin (TPA) access. To do so, please log in to your Iowa Workforce Development account and select "Assign Agent" from the left side of their employer homepage. Next, enter the Agent ID for Justworks Employment Group LLC: R2442917 and assign all UI account roles.
I joined Justworks in the middle of the quarter, what do I do?
Justworks will file for IA Unemployment for the whole quarter, as there cannot be duplicate filing under one Unemployment Account. Please send Justworks your QTD payroll reports and request all funds back from your current provider for Iowa State Unemployment. Since we will file for the entire quarter, we will bill you for the amount that has already been withheld, and we don’t want you to pay twice!
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
