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 reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on September 19, 2008, Alaska triggered ``off'' EB. Alaska's 3-month total unemployment rate for June, July and August fell to 109% of the prior year and 106% of the second prior year for the same period. This causes Alaska to be triggered ``off'' an EB period. After the week ending October 11, 2008, workers who exhaust their regular UI benefits will no longer be eligible to collect up to an additional 13 weeks of UI benefits under this program.
