The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding this state’s EB and EUC08 trigger status: • Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 18, 2012, New York no longer met one of the criteria to remain ‘‘on’’ in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110 percent of one of the rates from a comparable period in one of the three prior years. This triggered New York ‘‘off’’ in the EB Program and the end of the payable period was the week ending June 10, 2012. New York has served the full 13 week ‘‘off’’ period on September 9, 2012. Given that the trigger rate in New York is currently at 8.9 percent, one look-back is at 110 percent, and the 13 week mandatory ‘‘off’’ period has concluded, New York meets the criteria to resume a High Unemployment Period in the EB Program.

This mandatory 13-week ‘‘on’’ period concluded on September 2, 2012. Because the current trigger rate for New York is 8.9 percent, below the 9.0 percent threshold to remain on in Tier 4, New York has triggered ‘‘off’’ Tier 4 of the EUC08 Program and concluded an eligibility period in Tier 4 on September 2, 2012.

Extended Benefits (EB) Program.
    The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices

    The following changes have occurred since the publication of the 
last notice regarding this state's EB and EUC08 trigger status:
     Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics 
on May 18, 2012, New York no longer met one of the criteria to remain 
``on'' in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, 
seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110 percent of 
one of the rates from a comparable period in one of the three prior 
years. This triggered New York ``off'' in the EB Program and the end of 
the payable period was the week ending June 10, 2012. New York has 
served the full 13 week ``off'' period on September 9, 2012. Given that 
the trigger rate in New York is currently at 8.9 percent, one look-back 
is at 110 percent, and the 13 week mandatory ``off'' period has 
concluded, New York meets the criteria to resume a High Unemployment 
Period in the EB Program. This payable period started with the week 
beginning September 10, 2012, and the maximum potential entitlement for 
the EB Program in New York is 20 weeks.
     In New York, where weeks end on a Sunday, a 13 week 
mandatory ``on'' period began for Tier 4 of the EUC08 Program on June 
4, 2012. This mandatory 13-week ``on'' period concluded on September 2, 
2012. Because the current trigger rate for New York is 8.9 percent, 
below the 9.0 percent threshold to remain on in Tier 4, New York has 
triggered ``off'' Tier 4 of the EUC08 Program and concluded an 
eligibility period in Tier 4 on September 2, 2012. Claimants in New 
York exhausting Tier 3 after September 2, 2012, can no longer establish 
Tier 4 eligibility.

Information for Claimants

    The duration of benefits payable in the EUC08 Program, and the 
terms and conditions under which they are payable, are governed by 
public laws 110-252, 110-449, 111-5, 111-92, 111-118, 111-144, 111-157, 
111-205, 111-312, and 112-96, and the operating instructions issued to 
the states by the Department. The duration of benefits payable in the 
EB Program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are 
governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 
1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states 
by the Department.
    In the case of a state beginning or concluding a payable period in 
EB or EUC08, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice 
of any change in potential entitlement to each individual who could 
establish, or had established, eligibility for benefits (20 CFR 
615.13(c)(1) and (c)(4)). Persons who believe they may be entitled to 
benefits in the EB or EUC08 Programs, or who wish to inquire about 
their rights under these programs, should contact their State Workforce 
Agency.
