The VSBIT Unemployment Program began as the initial program of the Trust in 1978. Over the years membership has continued to grow. As of July 1, 2016, we have 212 members. Unlike other VSBIT programs, membership is not based at the Supervisory Union or stand alone School District level. Each taxable entity has its own account and membership. This allows each board to make its own decision about whether or not to join this program.
