Trade Adjustment Assistance

Trade Adjustment Assistance

Program Overview

The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program provides benefits and support to workers who become unemployed or are threatened with job loss due to the impact of international trade.

Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) offers a variety of benefits and services to eligible workers including the following:

  • Job training
  • Income support
  • Iob search and relocation allowances
  • A wage supplement to certain reemployed trade-affected workers 50 years of age and older

Eligibility Requirements

Workers who become totally or partially separated from employment on or after the petition date through two years from the date of certification, and all workers in a group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the date of certification through two years from the date of certification, are eligible to apply for TAA assistance

Once a complete petition is filed, the Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance (OTAA) initiates an investigation to determine whether a group of workers meets the group eligibility requirements. If the worker group meets the group eligibility criteria, a group eligibility certification will be issued. This certifies that the workers of the group are eligible to apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits.
