Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Trade Readjustment Allowance (TRA)
If you work while attending full time TAA approved training and receiving TRA payments, there is a calculation used to determine the weekly amount payable.
This only applies to TRA payment tiers; State UI payments and extension programs are still reduced by wages earned using the UI partial wage formula, even if enrolled in TAA approved training.
It is mandatory to report the gross amount of ALL wages earned in a calendar week.
Following is the TRA partial wage formula that applies only to participants who are:
The smallest TRA payment that will be made is $5, so if the calculation results in an amount that is less than $5, no payment will be made.
Recipients of Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) will be ineligible to receive TRA payments. Participants are required to report SSDI to UI TRA staff. Failure to report SSDI income will result in overpayment of benefits and possible penalties.
