There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  An Evaluation of the Feasibility of a Substate Area Extended Benefit Program
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The purpose of this report is to assess the feasibility of developing and operating a program of extended UI benefits at the substate level. In principle, extended benefits might be more effectively targeted toward workers who are experiencing severe difficulties in finding new jobs if the program could be initiated on the basis of local labor market conditions. The extent to which this improved targeting could be achieved in practice is an open question, however. Furthermore, a substate EB program might involve such considerable administrative complexity that the costs would outweigh whatever targeting advantages the program could provide. In this report we attempt to evaluate these tradeoffs.
