How to File

Electronic Filing

Effective with the first quarter 2014 filing, employers will be required to electronically file quarterly UC tax and wage reports through UCMS.
If you have not already registered with UCMS to file electronically, the time to do so is now. To access UCMS, go to
The Department of Labor & Industry will not be mailing UC-2 and UC-2A forms to employers for any filing period that begins on or after January 1, 2014. There are several options that employers can use to electronically file their UC tax and wage data. These options are online reporting, file upload through the employer portal or File Transfer Protocol (FTP). The online filing option should be used only if the number of employees in your entity is 100 or less. If the number of employees exceeds 100, you will need to either file upload or FTP. For information on the file layouts and formats that are necessary for electronic reporting of UC tax and wage data by file upload or FTP, please review the UC-2010 handbook which can be found on this website.
If you have questions, please contact the UC Employer Contact Center at 866-403-6163, Option 2 or, within the Harrisburg area at 717-787-7679, Option 2, weekdays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time. To ensure proper handling of your inquiry, please be prepared to provide the name of your business and your PA UC account number.
