About the Employer Account Management System (EAMS)

Three important messages to all employers and third-party administrators

1. You must upgrade to our new version of EAMS before you file your fourth-quarter tax report.

EAMS is the Employer Account Management System for filing quarterly wage reports and paying unemployment taxes. If you’re eligible to upgrade, you’ll see an upgrade alert after logging in. We are gradually making this upgrade available to all customers in time to file fourth-quarter reports. The updated EAMS is designed to perform better and improve your experience.

If you submit files in bulk or if you need to make amendments to your report:
Use the old version of EAMS until Nov. 28, 2022. After that date, you can use the new EAMS for these tasks as well.

How to upgrade to the new EAMS

  • Log into SecureAccess Washington and sign into EAMS.
  • If you’re eligible to upgrade, you will see an upgrade alert at the top of the page.
  • Select the link and follow the instructions.
  • If you don’t see the upgrade alert, don’t worry! It will be in place for you to file your fourth-quarter tax report.

2. Update your files and software with our new payment addresses.

The Employment Security Department (ESD) changed to U.S. Bank for unemployment insurance taxes and benefits. As a result, our payment addresses for employers also changed.

Please update any processes, forms, files or software with these new addresses by Dec. 31, 2022.

3. Stay informed about issues important to employers.

EAMS for single filers is a secure online option for filing quarterly unemployment tax and wage reports and paying unemployment-insurance taxes for single employers, as opposed to an accounting firm or business services company that files for many employers at once. This new system replaces the UIWeb Tax system.

Please note: We offer two versions of EAMS. If you used EAMS prior to the third quarter of 2019, you used the original version of EAMS designed for accounting firms or business service companies that file for many employers at once. The new EAMS for single filers is designed to improve the user experience and provide improved performance—but currently, it does not have all of the features that the exist in the old version of EAMS. Users who need to make amendments or who are bulk filers should not use EAMS for single filers. 

EAMS for single filers can make your work easier and faster by allowing you to:

  1. Auto-calculate excess wages
  2. Save unfinished work
  3. Print reports
  4. View payment history
  5. Cancel pending payments
  6. View account activity
  7. Control your user account

If you could benefit from the following options, use EAMS for bulk filers:

  1. Copy data from one quarter to the next
  2. Amend reports
  3. View prior reports
  4. File bulk reports

*These functions will be added to EAMS for Single Filers later in 2022.

How to set up your EAMS for single filers account:

  1. Read the introduction to EAMS For single filers and the system’s step-by-step set up instructions.
  2. Set up an account in SecureAccess Washington and log in.
  3. From 'My Secure Services' menu in SAW, select Employment Security Department and then choose My Unemployment Insurance Tax.
    *DO NOT choose the option for EAMS. That is a link to the *old* version of EAMS. 
  4. Click ‘Continue’; the EAMS For single filers home page displays.
  5. Click ‘+Add’ to associate an employer to your account.
