To receive TAA benefits, the worker group must be determined eligible by the U.S. DOL. To submit a petition for worker group eligibility, see our Petitioner page. Individual workers must then apply for benefits through the state workforce agency. Your local American Jobs Center can be found here.
Due to program changes, there are multiple versions of the TAA program. Individual benefits vary depending on the petition number.
