For experience-rated employers (those with three or more years of experience), the contribution rate is based on a ratio, called the benefit ratio, which is determined in such a way that the greater the unemployment caused by the employer, the higher the rate. Non-profit institutions and governmental entities may elect to make payments in lieu of contributions due. In most cases, these are equal to the percent of regular benefit amounts, including dependents' allowances, that are paid to beneficiaries.
