SPECIAL TEMPORARY EXTENDED UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION
FOR DISPLACED AIRLINE RELATED WORKERS
WHAT IS TEUC-A? Temporary Extended Unemployment Compensation
for displaced airline related workers (TEUC-A) provides
up to 39 weeks of benefits to unemployed workers whose
exhausted regular unemployment compensation (UC) claim
was based in whole, or in part, on qualifying employment
for a certified air carrier, employment at a facility
at an airport, or with a producer or supplier of products
or services directly to an air carrier. Any regular
TEUC or TEUC-X benefits received will be deducted from
benefits available under this special program.
WHO ARE ELIGIBLE INDIVIDUALS FOR TEUC-A?
Potentially eligible individuals are those individuals
who have exhausted regular, additional, extended or
regular TEUC benefits (including TEUC-X), or have an
existing TEUC claim on file with a balance remaining
whose regular claim for UC was based in whole, or in
part, on employment and wages from the qualifying employment
described above, and, who was laid-off from such employment
on or after September 11, 2001 due to:
The reductions in airline service because of the terrorist
actions of September 11, 2001, or,
The closure of a U.S. airport because of the terrorist
actions or security measures, or,
The conflict with Iraq.
DOES THIS SPECIAL TEUC PROGRAM PROVIDE FOR AN EXTENSION
OF TEUC-A BENEFITS?
Yes. There can be an augmentation of one-third (up
to 13 additional weeks) of the TEUC-A monetary entitlement
for eligible individuals having their claims being
paid by states that are in an extended period or a
TEUC-X period because of a high unemployment rate.
These extended weeks are referred to as TEUC-AX benefits.
WHEN WILL TEUC-A BENEFITS BE PAID?
Unemployed eligible individuals will receive TEUC-A
benefits for weeks of unemployment beginning after
April 16, 2003 (date of enactment). TEUC-A and TEUC-AX
monetary determinations and redeterminations may be
made through the last week ending before December 29,
2003. Individuals having a remaining balance in their
account as of December 28, 2003, may continue to receive
benefits for weeks of unemployment during a phase-out
period that ends the week beginning on or before December
26, 2004. Eligibility will be determined by the state
workforce agency that paid an individualÃ¿Â¿s regular
claim. IndividualÃ¿Â¿s having questions concerning TEUC-A
eligibility should check with their state workforce
