ETA 191 Statement of Expenditures and Financial Adjustments of Federal Funds for Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees and Ex-Servicemembers
General Description The Form ETA 191, Statement of Expenditures and Financial Adjustments of Federal Funds for Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees and Ex-Servicemembers issued by each State employment security agency (SESA) to report to the National Office (NO): 1) the quarterly summary of UCFE and UCX expenditures and adjustments, and 2) the total amount of benefits paid by the SESA to claimants of specific agencies. Section B of the ETA 191 is the only source document used by the Office of Workforce Security to bill Federal and military agencies for the recovery of UCFE and UCX benefit payments.
Each SESA withdraws resources from the FEC Account to cover the necessary UCFE and UCX benefit payments. UIS bills the Federal and military agencies quarterly, based on the data contained in Section B of the ETA 191 report. Each Federal and military agency deposits into the FEC Account, on a quarterly basis, reimbursements for benefits that have been paid to their former employees.
After receipt of each quarterly ETA 191 report, UIS aggregates the benefit payments by all States for individual Federal agencies and bills each accordingly. Quarterly, the NO certifies to the U.S. Department of the Treasury the total amounts due from each department and agency.

ETA 218 Benefit Rights and Experience
General Description Data reported on the ETA 218 provides a means of evaluating state benefit formulas, as administered under the state unemployment insurance program. The number of monetary determinations on new claims is used as a base to which other items reported in section A of the report may be related. The number of new claims determined to have insufficient wage credits and the number with sufficient wage credits provide information on the effect of the monetary qualifying requirements in the state law. The number of new claims determined to have established benefit years is used on an annual basis to estimate the number of eligible claimants in each state.

The number of eligible claimants with potential maximum duration, the average potential duration for all eligible claimants, and their distribution by number of full weeks of potential duration show the extent of protection, in terms of weeks of benefits, available to potential beneficiaries. These figures permit computation of the maximum potential current liability of the fund, and reflect on a reasonable, current basis the effect of changes and potential changes in benefit provisions of state laws. The number of claimants who exhaust benefits with maximum duration, the average actual duration of all claimants who exhaust benefits, and their distribution by number of full weeks of benefits drawn show the actual amount of protection provided by the program for claimants still unemployed on receipt of their final payment in a benefit year.

ETA 9016 Alien Claims Activity Report
General Description

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, Public Law 99-603, amended the Social Security Act by adding to Section 1137 - "Income and Eligibility Verification System". Section 1137 provisions require states to verify, through the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the legal status of all aliens applying for benefits under certain federally assisted and federally funded programs, including Unemployment Compensation. To facilitate the required verification, INS developed the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlement (SAVE) system. SAVE consists of automated and manual procedures by which states obtain information about an alien's immigration status that will allow them to determine the alien's eligibility for unemployment compensation.

ETA HANDBOOK 394 Annual Program and Financial Data (ET Financial Handbook 394)
General Description The Unemployment Insurance Financial Data Handbook is intended primarily for the use of State Workforce Agencies and others in projecting unemployment insurance benefits costs and in the analysis of various aspects of benefit financing.

Most of these data were compiled from monthly and quarterly statistical and accounting reports submitted by the State Workforce Agencies to the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor. Revised data and corrections have been incorporated into these tables to the extent possible. Data contained in this Handbook may not be identical with state records. Significant corrections and/or additions, as well as any comments, should be emailed along with any questions and suggestions to the USDOL National Office.

In comparing data for different states or years, analysts should consider differences in coverage provisions, benefits formulas, tax bases, economic conditions, etc. They should use the expertise of the State agency and the national office personnel in determining significant changes in data among States of years and understand the General Notes and the Glossary prior to using the Handbook data.
