Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA)
Income support is provided to TAA participants laid off due to lack of work or whose hours of work and wages are reduced due to elements of United States foreign trade, such as imports or off shoring.
Trade Readjustment Allowance (TRA) is a federal weekly-extended benefit. It is payable only AFTER regular state unemployment insurance (and extensions, if applicable) is exhausted.
To be eligible for TRA weekly payments, participants must be enrolled in full-time TAA approved training or waived from the training requirement within twenty-six weeks of the certification date or twenty-six weeks of the most recent qualifying separation, whichever is later. It is extremely important that participants make timely applications for TAA and TRA services and benefits. A failure to meet these enrollment or waiver deadlines will result in the loss of all TRA.
