Quickbooks online Workman Comp/ Unemployment insurance

Ok I hope I am not the only one having issues:


In WY we have unemployment insurance and Workmans comp insurance, as two separate rates.  So my unemployment insurance is .8% and my workman comp insurance is 4.94 %.  I have only ever been able to combine them for liability purposes, but because I reached my max out of pocket on unemployment, my liability account is off.  So I would rather just have a complete separate way of tracking unemployment, and workman comp.  Every article I have read doesn't apply to quickbooks online services to track workman comp. Can anyone help with this?

Hi, AlanJones.


You can setup a separate worker’s compensation tracking through the steps below:

  1. Go to Workers from the left panel.
  2. Select the Worker’s Comp tab at the top.
  3. Click the Request a quote tab.

Once done, AP Intego will then contact you directly to establish a policy and answer any questions you might have for the setup.

For additional information about setting workers comp in QuickBooks Online, please check the QBO payroll section of this article:


Moreover, if your state requires having a joint account for UI and WC, I’d be best to check with them on how to handle maxed out unemployment.
