Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Trade Readjustment Allowance (TRA)
If you work while attending training, there is a calculation used to determine the weekly amount payable.
This calculation applies to TRA payments only; State UI payments and extension programs are still reduced using the UI partial wage formula, even if enrolled in training.
It is mandatory to report the gross amount of ALL wages earned in a calendar week.
This is the wage formula used for those who are attending full-time TAA approved training and receiving TRA payments:
The lowest 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 Insurance (SSDI) will be ineligible to receive TRA payments. You are required to report SSDI. Failure to report SSDI will result in overpayment of benefits and possible penalties.
