Participant Handbooks

The participant handbook contains important information and instructions to help you know and protect your rights available under the Federal Trade Adjustment Assistance program. The handbook is based on the law when your petition was certified.

What Law Are You Covered Under?

The Federal Trade Act of 1974 was amended in 2015, 2011, 2009 and 2002 (see Statutes & Regulations). The mix of benefits and services will be different based on when petitions were filed.

Petition Number
