Benefits for eligible workers may include:

  • Education or retraining with income support
  • Wage subsidy for workers age 50 and over
  • Health coverage tax credit
  • Job search and relocation assistance
  • Employment and case management services

 

TAA is a federally funded program that helps workers who have lost their jobs as a result of foreign trade. For a worker to be eligible for this program, a TAA petition must be filed with the U.S. Department of Labor for certification.

 

The TAA petition may be filed by any of the following:

  • Three or more workers
  • Employer’s representative
  • Unions
  • One-stop operators/partners
  • State Dislocated Workers Unit

 

TAA petitions are investigated by the federal government to determine eligibility for certification. Once the petition has been certified by the Department of Labor, the laid-off workers may be eligible for a variety of benefits, including job training, income support, job search and relocation allowances, a tax credit to help pay the costs of health insurance, and a wage supplement to certain reemployed trade-affected workers 50 years of age and older.
