SUBJECT

:

Consolidation of the Attachments to GAL 4-92 Incorporating GAL 4-92, Changes 1 Through 4

  1. Purpose: To provide State Employment Security Agencies (SESAs) with a consolidation of the Attachments to GAL 4-92 in order to assist SESAs in the administration of the emergency unemployment compensation (EUC) program.

  2. Contact: Questions should be directed to the appropriate Regional Office.

  3. References: GAL 4-92 and GAL 4-92, Changes 1 through 4.

  4. Substance: The attached consolidation of Attachments A, B, and C to GAL 4-92 incorporating the changes made by GAL 4-92, Changes 1, 2, 3, and 4 are controlling guidance for the States and cooperating State agencies in the administration of the EUC program, is a compilation of the five separate documents.

    In this consolidation, one clarifying "NOTE" has been added to those previously included in the Attachments. It is at the end of Section III.L.3.b. (pg. 44). It clarifies that an individual may change his/her initial election to receive EUC in lieu of regular compensation at any time subsequent to the initial election for weeks of unemployment not yet paid at the time of such subsequent election. However, once an election is made there can be no retroactive retraction of the election. One exception is provided, however, for a retroactive election. The exception is that a retroactive election is permitted for an individual's initial election under Section 102(b)(2)(B) of the Unemployment Compensation Amendments of 1992, if such election is made at the first opportunity given the individual to make an informed election, for all weeks of unemployment beginning after July 3, 1992.

    Also, as an editorial correction, the heading for Section III.E.2.b.(i) (pg. 33) has been changed to "Twenty Weeks".

    In addition, Section 5. of Attachment C has been revised to reflect Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval.

    This General Administration Letter and Attachment will be published in the Federal Register.

  5. Action Required:  SESA Administrators should ensure that the attached consolidation is distributed to appropriate individuals.

  6. Attachments: Consolidated Version of Attachments A, B, and C to GAL 4-92.
