Announcement regarding Notice of a Change in Status of the payable periods in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) program for Colorado.
Public Law 111-312 extended provisions in Public Law 111-92 which amended prior laws to create Third and Fourth Tiers of benefits within the EUC08 program for qualified unemployed workers claiming benefits in high unemployment states. The Department of Labor produces a trigger notice indicating which states qualify for EUC08 benefits within Tiers Three and Four and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for Start Printed Page 75563each qualifying state. The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EUC08 program can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims_arch.asp.
- Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on October 21, 2011, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Colorado fell below the 8.5% threshold to remain “on” in Tier Four of the EUC08 program. The week ending November 12, 2011, is the last week in which EUC claimants in Colorado can exhaust Tier 3 and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants who were in Tier Four can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier Four after November 12, 2011.
