Notice of a Change in Status of an Extended Benefit (EB) Period for Alaska
This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB Program for Alaska. The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the state's EB status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 12, 2018, Alaska's 3-month average seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate (TUR) remains above 6.5 percent for the 3-months ending January 2018. However, this rate fails to meet the requirement of being at least 110 percent of the seasonally adjusted TUR for the corresponding period in either of the prior two years. Therefore, the EB period for Alaska will end on April 7, 2018. The state will remain in an ``off'' period for a minimum of 13 weeks.
