ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration has provided guidance to State workforce agencies on an amendment to Federal unemployment compensation (UC) law that prohibits the reduction of UC due to nontaxable pension rollover distributions. This continuing guidance was issued on May 4, 2009 as UIPL No. 10–09 and is published below to inform the public. It rescinds UIPL No. 22–87, Change 2. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: UIPL 10–09: Treatment of Pension Rollover Distributions 1. Purpose. To advise States of an amendment to Federal unemployment compensation (UC) law that prohibits the reduction of UC due to nontaxable pension rollover distributions. 2. References. Sections 3304(a)(15) of the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA); Public Law 109–280, the Pension Protection Act of 2006; Public Law 110–458, the Worker, Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act of 2008; Unemployment Insurance Program Letter (UIPL) 22–87 and Changes 1 (60 FR 55,604 (1995)) and 2 (68 FR 15,241 (2003)); Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Publications 575 and 590; and IRS Tax Topic 413—Rollovers from Retirement Plans. 3. Background. As a result of an amendment made by the Worker, Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act of 2008, States are now prohibited from reducing UC due to nontaxable pension rollover distributions. Whether to reduce UC due to receipt of taxable distributions remains a matter for the State to determine. This UIPL is issued to explain the amendment and its effect. Based on information available to the Department, only one State currently reduces UC due to any pension rollovers. However, all States should review their laws regarding treatment of E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1
