Reversion 2014 Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)
(Certified petitions filed on or after Jan. 1, 2014)
Reversion 2014 TAA is a Federal program that provides assistance to adversely affected workers who lose their jobs or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of increased imports or whose firms have been affected by, or are threatened to be affected by, shifts in production of articles to certain foreign countries. It also provides assistance to workers whose firm is a supplier or downstream producer to a certified primary firm and is certified as secondarily affected.
TAA benefits include:
- Reemployment services such as funded training, job search allowances, and relocation allowances.
- Weekly cash benefit payments known as Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA).
Each benefit has distinct eligibility requirements and must be applied for separately. To receive these benefits, you must file your applications or take certain actions within certain time limits. For example, to be eligible for any TRA benefits under a petition that is certified under the Reversion 2014 program, you must:
- Be enrolled in a training program by the end of the 8th week after the petition certification is issued by the U.S. Department of Labor; or
- Be enrolled in a training program by the end of the 16th week after your most recent qualifying separation; or
- Be issued a waiver of the training program enrollment requirement by a TAA representative effective on or before the enrollment in training deadline.
If issued a waiver of this requirement, you must still apply for training within 210 days of your separation or petition certification in order to be eligible for additional TRA.
If you have any questions regarding this program or would like to apply for these benefits, please contact the UC Service Center at 1-888-313-7284 or visit your local Pennsylvania CareerLink® office.
