YOU CAN DO MORE TO PAY LESS

UI SIDES and SIDES E-Response:
Separation and Information Data Exchange System

DON’T LOSE REVENUE PAID TO INELIGIBLE CLAIMANTS

The free State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES and SIDES E-Response) can:

  • Reduce paperwork
  • Eliminate postage costs
  • Minimize unnecessary appeals
  • Ensure accurate UI tax assessments
  • Deter improper UI payments

Let us show you how:

UI SIDES and SIDES E-Response are two computer-based options developed through a partnership between the U.S. Department of Labor and state UI agencies to simplify and streamline responses to UI information requests. Both SIDES and SIDES E-Response use nationally standardized, electronic formats to process UI information exchanges.

Why use SIDES and Sides E-Response? There are many benefits:

> Both SIDES and SIDES E-Response are free
> Reduction of staff time and paperwork, on your end and ours
> Help keep UI rates as low as possible by reducing overpayments
> Includes data checks to ensure the exchange of complete, valid information
> Provide an electronic, nationally-standardized data format
> Reduces follow-up requests and phone calls

SIDES is best suited for employers and third party administrators (TPAs) that typically handle a large volume of UI information requests.

SIDES E-Response is ideal for employers and TPAs with a limited number of annual UI requests.
