hOW TO APPLY FOR tAA THROUGH THE TRADE ACT OF 1974 AMENDED

How to Apply collage

Trade Act applications have two separate phases as follows:

  • To obtain TAA reemployment services and benefits, a petition must first be filed with the U.S. Department of Laborís Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance (OTAA) requesting certification as workers adversely affected by foreign trade. The OTAA will investigate in response to the petition filed.  If the worker group meets the necessary group eligibility criteria, a certification will be issued.
     

  • After a group certification is issued, each individual in the group may then apply for individual benefits through the Connecticut Department of Labor (CTDOL) to determine individual TAA eligibility for these benefits.
