ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces a change in benefit payment status under the EB program for the Virgin Islands. The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the Virgin Islands’ EB status: • The Virgin Islands’ 13-week insured unemployment rate (IUR) for the week ending December 02, 2017 was 5.68 percent which exceeds 120 percent of the corresponding rate in the prior year. This caused Virgin Islands to be triggered ‘‘on’’ to an EB period that began December 17, 2017. The State will remain in an EB period for a minimum of 13 weeks. The trigger notice covering state eligibility for the EB program can be found at: http://oui.doleta.gov/ unemploy/claims_arch.asp.

In the case of a state beginning an EB period, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who has exhausted all rights to regular benefits and is potentially eligible for EB (20 CFR 615.13 (c) (1)). Persons who believe they may be entitled to EB, or who wish to inquire about their rights under the program, should contact their State Workforce Agency.

Each year, the Department of Defense issues a Schedule of Remuneration that may be used by states, as needed, for UCX purposes. States must use the schedule to determine Federal military wages for UCX ‘‘first claims’’ only when the Federal Claims Control Center (FCCC) responds to a request for information indicating that there is no Copy 5 of the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214) for an individual under the social security number provided. A response from the FCCC that indicates ‘‘no DD214 on file’’ will prompt the state to start the affidavit process and to use the attached schedule to calculate the Federal military wages for an unemployment insurance or UCX monetary determination. The schedule applies to UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed beginning with the first day of the first week that begins on or after January 1, 2018, pursuant to the UCX program regulations (see 20 CFR 614.12(c)). States must continue to use the 2017 schedule (or other appropriate schedule) for UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed before the effective date of the revised schedule.
