Information pertaining to the UCX claimant can only be obtained from the individual’s military discharge papers, maintained by the appropriate branch of military service or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (formerly the Veterans’ Administration).

the UCX program.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the 
addresses section below on or before November 19, 2012.

Unemployment Insurance, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. 
Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The UCX law (5 U.S.C. 8521-8525) requires State Workforce Agencies 
(SWAs) to administer the UCX program in accordance with the same terms 
and conditions of the paying state's unemployment insurance law which 
apply to unemployed claimants who worked in the private sector. Each 
state agency needs to obtain certain military service information on 
claimants filing for UCX benefits to enable the state to determine 
their eligibility for benefits. As needed, state agencies may record or 
obtain required UCX information on the form developed by the 
Department, ETA 843, Request for Military Document and Information. The 
use of this form is essential to the UCX claims process. Form ETA 841, 
Request for Determination of Federal Military Service and Wages, is no 
longer used by most states; it has become an optional form.
    Information pertaining to the UCX claimant can only be obtained 
from the individual's military discharge papers, maintained by the 
appropriate branch of military service or the Department of Veterans' 
Affairs (formerly the Veterans' Administration). Without the claimant's 
military information, the state cannot adequately determine potential 
UCX eligibility of ex-servicemembers and

[[Page 57596]]

would not be able to properly administer the program.

II. Review Focus

     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and minimize the burden of the collection 
of information on those who are to respond, including through the use 
of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other 
technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.
