This week’s question comes from Perry, an office manager. I’ve registered my business with the Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA). How do I register Vision Payroll as my TPA in QUEST? Answer: Once you have completed activating your QUEST account on-line and established your permanent password and PIN at www.mass.gov/uima, log in to your account, select and execute the following:
From the Employer Home page:
Select the Account Maintenance page
Select the Third Party Administrator (TPA) Authorization link
Click the ‘NEW’ button
Enter Vision Payroll’s ID Number 100028 and click ‘NEXT’
Vision Payroll’s name will appear.
Select the current day’s date (mm/dd/yyyy) when asked when services are commencing
Leave the service end date field blank
Assign the following roles to Vision Payroll by clicking on the appropriate boxes displayed:
- Account Maintenance Update and Submit
- Payments Update and Submit
- Employment and Wage Detail Update and Submit
Click the ‘Save’ button
Return to the home page and log off the web site
Vision Payroll will then have authorization to provide the same filing services through QUEST as have been performed in the past. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any questions on QUEST.
