Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund Forecast

This report provides the status and updated projections of the state’s unemployment insurance trust fund.

This report provides information on Washington state’s unemployment insurance trust fund current and projected balances, benefits and employer contributions. The Employment Security Department’s unemployment trust fund model is reviewed and adjusted several times a year. The adjustments are made by changing several variables in the model, which are derived from the state’s Economic and Revenue Forecast Council’s (ERFC) quarterly economic forecast, IHS Global Insight and updated unemployment insurance recipiency rates and by replacing forecasted data with the most current actual data.


The Labor Market and Performance Analysis division produces monthly unemployment benefits reports by legislative district, congressional district and county. These reports are published monthly at the unemployment benefits reports website.
