Description: On April 16, 2003, President Bush signed into law an enhancement to the Temporary Extended Unemployment Compensation (TEUC) program. This enhancement created special rules for determining TEUC eligibility for certain displaced airline related workers. Such workers may qualify for an additional 26 weeks of basic TEUC benefits if the worker became unemployed as a result of terrorist actions of September 11, 2001 as a result of security responses to these attacks or the closing of an airport, or as a result of the military conflict in Iraq. To determine TEUC eligibility for these displaced airline and related workers specific information from employers will need to be collected. Approval is being sought for this collection of information.Start Signature
