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: As of January 10, 2009, Alaska has completed a mandatory 13-week ``off'' trigger period. Based on data reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on December 19, 2008, Alaska's 3-month seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate was 7.1 percent and equals or exceeds 110 percent of the corresponding rate in both prior years. This causes Alaska to be triggered ``on'' to an EB period beginning January 25, 2009.
