Wage reports can be submitted via the Secure Transport File Transfer Protocol (FTP) application. Note that you may only submit wage reports via FTP; premium reports (Form UITR-1) must be submitted via MyUI Employer or by U.S. mail with the paper form.

FTP Log in

New Users

If you have never submitted a wage file through FTP, you are required to submit a test file in the Interstate Conference of Employment Security Agencies (ICESA) format. CDLE will validate the format of the test file for you, and then provide a unique User ID and Password to use for submitting quarterly wage files. 

Please read our instructions to get started.

Confirming / Updating the Submitter’s Email Address

Each quarter you will be prompted to confirm or update the email address associated with your FTP account when you log in. The email address you provide will be used to communicate success or failure of your wage file upload and any issues with specific records within the file. You must confirm or update your email address in order to upload a wage file each quarter.

Please call 303-318-9094 if you lose or forget your password.
