Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE)--List of Federal Agency Addresses for State Agency Use When Processing UCFE Claims

  1. Purpose. To provide a listing of appropriate Federal agency addresses for use by State agency personnel when processing UCFE claims.

  2. Reference. Federal regulations at 20 CFR Part 609 and UIPL No. 32-89 (U.S. Coast Guard NAF), 48-89 (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers), 12-90 (Air Force), and 46-92 (Federal agencies serviced by Frick, Inc.)

  3. Background. It has come to our attention that a number of State agencies are experiencing difficulties in handling UCFE claims inquiries due to a lack of accurate Federal agency addresses. Many claim inquiries (Forms ES-931, ES-931A, ES-934, ES-936) and notices of determination and appeal are frequently forwarded to inappropriate addresses because claimants do not present an SF-8, Notice to Federal Employee About Unemployment Insurance, which contains an address for forwarding inquiries or the State agency does not have a proper forwarding address in their records. As a result, when inquiries finally reach the appropriate Federal agency address, it is next to impossible to meet the 4-day timeframe to forward the completed response to the State agency as required by 20 CFR 609.21(b).

    To date, we have received change of address requests from two Federal agencies that have centralized addresses--the U.S. Postal Service, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These address changes are included in an alphabetical listing which contains the centralized addresses of other Federal agencies that were previously forwarded to the SESAs via TWX or which were recently provided to the National Office for dissemination. In addition, included as separate attachments are decentralized address listings for the Department of the Air Force (Appropriated Fund Activities--FIC No. 424 and Non-Appropriated Fund Acitivies--FIC No. 427), the Department of the Army (Appropriated Fund Activities-- FIC No. 422)*, the Department of Health and Human Services (FIC No. 460), and the Department of Justice (FIC No. 430). Subsequent program letters for other Federal agencies will follow as the need dictates and/or when a Federal agency provides this office with an address listing.

    * Note--Listing for Army Non-Appropriated Fund Activities (FIC No. 425) not available at this time.

  4. Action Required. SESA administrators are requested to distribute this listingimmediately to the appropriate State agency personnel for their use in sending forms and notices or making inquiries pertaining to UCFE claims for former Federal employees.

  5. Inquiries. Questions should be directed to the appropriate Regional Office.
