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 Analysis of UI Trust Fund Adequacy
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report examines the question of trust fund adequacy in State Unemployment Insurance (UI). It is intended to provide both a general overview of UI trust fund management issues and specific observations on how the responsiveness of UI taxes affects the level of reserves needed by individual states. The discussion is initially presented at a general level and then in much more detail in later sections. The purposes of the report are to provide some tangible meaning to the term ?adequate trust fund reserves? and to provide a relatively simple method that states with positive trust fund balances can use to assess the adequacy of their reserves under current state law.
