RHODE ISLAND – Benefit Charge Notices
Over the past several years, Rhode Island has changed the process for setting up the official mailing address and powers of attorney for unemployment documents. Thomas & Company can access the RI system and document the accounts that we represent for unemployment. Through this process, we receive many of the unemployment documents directly in our office.
One notable exception is the benefit charge statements and invoices. Rhode Island will only send these time sensitive documents to the client’s address. Since the state only allows 15 days from the mailing date to file a protest of benefit charges, and the invoices for reimbursing employers are due within 30 days of the mailing date, it is important that these documents are sent to Thomas & Company as soon as they are received. Once the deadline has past, we lose the ability to protest any erroneous charges, which can have an impact on the taxes paid and/or benefits reimbursed in Rhode Island. Please forward any charge statements/charge invoices to [email protected] or fax to (615) 242-5236.
