Justworks is required to file Unemployment Insurance under our Justworks Unemployment Accounts and customers will be subject to Justworks’ state unemployment rates. Previous state Unemployment Accounts should be suspended or closed, but if your current PEO is filing under your (client's) unemployment account, please let Justworks know and we will send revised instructions.
I was previously using a PEO, do I still need to do this?
If your company is joining Justworks, please communicate your Justworks start date with your current PEO. Justworks will take over filing for Montana Unemployment and withholding from your Justworks start date onwards.
Closing your unemployment account
There are two ways to close your Montana unemployment account.
Option 1: The authorized agent or owner/officer must call one of the two representatives listed below:
- Deb: (406)-444-3606
- Michelle: (406)-444-3614
Option 2: If you have access to your online portal, you are able to send the state a "message" requesting that your account be closed.
If you’re having trouble completing the online account setup process, please contact the state’s customer service line for assistance.
My company is new to the state of Montana, what do we need to do?
If this is your first time operating in Montana, you’re all set. Newly formed companies in Montana, or companies with a new remote hire in MT, do not need to take any action or file any forms.
