  3. Background. This advisory continues the Department’s guidance concerning the TEUC program extension for airline and related workers (hereafter referred to as TEUC-A) by answering questions submitted by states. The answers address specific circumstances consistent with the Department’s interpretation of Section 4002 of P.L. 108-11 which creates special rules for determining eligibility for TEUC-A. Please note: There is a typographical error in Attachment A to UIPL No. 30-02, Change 2, page 3. Section (3) ADDITIONAL WEEKS OF BENEFITS, (B) should read as follows: “in subsection (c)(1), by inserting “1/3 of” after “equal to”.”

    The attached questions and answers are organized by category in order to make it easier to find questions and answers of interest.

  4. Action Required. Administrators are requested to provide this advisory to appropriate staff and ensure adherence to the guidance.
