The Missouri Division of Employment Security’s new unemployment tax system, UInteract, launched on Nov. 16, 2016. UInteract is a new, fully-integrated unemployment insurance tax, benefits and appeals system that improves your ability to conduct business with the Division online with a more user-friendly interface and expanded self-service.
If you are a new Missouri employer needing to register with the Division, check out our New Employer Quick Guide for more information.
Important Information for Current Employers Registered Prior to Nov. 16, 2016
- Your Employer Account Number prior to Nov. 16, 2016, has changed.
- The first time you access UInteract, you can register with your current 14-digit employer account number or with your new 10-digit employer account number that was mailed to you to create a new user account.
- If you use a third party administrator, CPA or payroll service, you will need to notify them of your new Employer Account Number.
- Be sure you have a current Power of Attorney (POA) on file with the Division. A POA will be required for your CPA or payroll service to access UInteract on your behalf.
