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 :
  Family Support and Expenditures Survey of Unemployment Insurance Claimants in New York State, September 1972 - February 1974
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report presents information from two fields of study. Part A discusses financial adjustments that workers and their families made to cope with living costs after a wage loss that was only partially compensated by receipt of unemployment benefits. It describes the frequency with which unemployment insurance beneficiaries in New York State reported changes in family spending, the consumption areas affected, changes in savings, and new sources of family income, if any. Part B describes the extent to which unemployment insurance beneficiaries had dependents, the number of their dependents, and the differences in dependency rates based on family and personal characteristics of the beneficiaries. It also provides cost estimates for dependents? allowances under various bills introduced in the New York State Legislature in 1975.
