Remote Work, Simplified

Make it easier to manage a distributed team

From automatic state tax registration to remote laptop management, Rippling PEO makes it easy to hire and onboard people anywhere.

Easy on, Easy off

Easily move on and off Rippling PEO

Someday you may grow to the point that it makes more sense to bring HR in house instead of using a PEO. With other PEOs, that requires a painful switching process. With Rippling, all you need to do is turn off the PEO and transition seamlessly to our all-in-one HR platform. Your HR, payroll, and employee data will still be stored in your account, and your integrations with other systems will remain intact. Your employees will have the same logins, and they’ll continue using Rippling the same way they have been.

PEO software that you’ll actually love

Most PEOs run on software built in the 80s (really). Only Rippling runs on modern software that offers all the benefits and none of the headaches of legacy PEOs.

What are the main benefits of working with a PEO?

A PEO allows companies to outsource critical HR & compliance administrative tasks, and get access to attractive large group benefit plans, which traditionally have not been available to small and mid-sized businesses.

What is a Certified PEO (CPEO) and should I work with one?

Certified PEO is a voluntary Internal Revenue Service (IRS) certification program for PEOs. It was established in 2014 to enable the carryover of a client’s taxable wage base –however laws have since changed, and now PEOs that are not CPEO certified offer wage base carryover. There are several downsides and risks associated with Certified PEOs, which is why Rippling PEO does not plan to become a Certified PEO. Read more about why CPEO is not always the right solution.

Does Rippling PEO meet the requirements of a CPEO?

Yes. Rippling PEO meets all IRS requirements to become a certified PEO (CPEO), including having surety bonds that meet / exceed the IRS requirements in all states where these are required. However, we believe the downsides of becoming a CPEO outweigh the benefits, so we’ve chosen to not pursue this certification.

How is Rippling PEO different from other PEOs?

  1. Rippling PEO enables easy transitions both on / off our PEO product without any disruption to your employee or payroll data; this enables us to support customers throughout their growth cycles. 
  2. We automatically create state / local payroll tax accounts when you hire your first employee in a new state; we also keep your State unemployment insurance (SUI) rates up to date when they change.
  3. We provide our clients freedom of choice to choose their own flex benefits provider (FSA, HSA, commuter) and 401k provider.
  4. We’ve elected to be client-reporting for SUI purposes in all states where this can be easily supported, which enables our customers to continue to report SUI under their own SUI account number, and SUI rate.
  5. We automate compliance, like triggering digital labor law posters when an employee moves to a new tax jurisdiction; flagging minimum wage violations in product; delivering law alerts when HR laws change in states where you have employees; and suggesting employee handbook updates per your geographic footprint.

In what states is Rippling PEO available?

Rippling PEO is available in all 50 States.
