SUBJECT

:

Average Weekly Benefit Amount (AWBA) Where the Date of the Disaster Occurs During the First Quarter of Fiscal Year (FY) 1993 (October 1 through December 31, 1992)

  1. Purpose. To transmit the AWBA for each State for the first quarter of FY 1993.

    NOTE: The subject and contents of this UIPL and heading of the Attachment have been changed to reflect the application of the AWBA to the "date of the disaster" for an individual as defined in UIPL 43-91. As provided in UIPL 43-91, "date of the disaster" means the "date the major disaster began, or if later, the date the individual became unemployed." Any application of the AWBA to the DUA weekly benefit amount will, therefore, reflect the quarter of the individual's most recent unemployment due to the major disaster.

  2. AWBA Utilization. The attached listing identifies the AWBA which is to be used when computing the weekly amount of disaster unemployment assistance (DUA) for major disasters where the date of the disaster for the individual occurs during the first quarter of FY 1993 (refer to 20 CFR 625.6). The AWBA for each State is based on the total amount of unemployment insurance paid in that State in the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters immediately preceding the quarter in which the major disaster began. States shall use the AWBA, rounded to the next higher dollar amount, in the computation of the DUA weekly benefit amount. An updated listing will be provided for each subsequent calendar quarter.

  3. Action Required. State Employment Security Agency Administrators are requested to provide this information to appropriate staff.

  4. Inquiries. Inquiries should be addressed to the appropriate Regional Office.

  5. Attachment. AWBA Where the Date of the Disaster Occurs During the Quarter October 1 through December 31,1992.
