This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB Program for Alaska.
The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the State's EB status:
- May 27, 2000 Alaska's 13-week insured unemployment rate for the week ending May 6, 2000 fell below 6.0 percent and was less than 120 percent of the average for the corresponding period for the prior two years, causing Alaska to trigger “off” EB effective May 27, 2000.
Information for Claimants
The duration of benefits payable in the EB Program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended and the operating instructions issued to the States by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a State ending an EB period, the State employment security agency will furnish a written notice to each individual who is currently filing a claim for EB of the forthcoming end of the EB period and its effect on the individual's rights to EB (20 CFR 615.13(c)(4)).Start Signature
