Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has announced that the Mississippi, Rhode Island and Maine (MRM) Consortium has gone live with the TCS developed Unemployment Insurance (UI) Application for Benefits. Mississippi began implementation of the UI solution prior to the formation of the consortium, while the states of Maine and Rhode Island plan to adopt the solution in the near future.
Mississippi’s Unemployment Insurance program helps unemployed individuals throughout the state by providing monetary benefits to those who have involuntarily lost their jobs, while they look for new employment opportunities. TCS has been helping several US states to modernize their systems that support Unemployment Insurance programs. The TCS developed solution is a robust and highly scalable platform with the ability to easily control multiple functional requirements, such as support for online claims processing, adjudication, appeals and extensive tracking of all claims and payments.
Playing a key role in the MRM Consortium’s digital strategy, the TCS developed UI solution also includes an enhanced mobile app that provides easy access for claimants to file weekly certifications with work search details. The MRM Consortium states now have a strong foundation for future modernization, offering greater flexibility, shared maintenance cost and ease-of-use, and the ability to move towards cloud based systems in the near future.
