Coverage Tax

Credit • have filed a TRA claim; and


• have enrolled in a TAA-approved training program or have a

waiver of the training requirement.






ATAA is a benefit for Trade-certified workers at least 50 years of

age who have attained a full-time position different than their

previous position within 26 weeks of layoff. The Trade-certified

worker receives 50 percent of the difference between his or her

former and current wages for up to two years ($10,000 maximum).

The current annual wage must be less than $50,000.

Note: See Part E-100 for more information.

A Trade-certified worker who begins receiving payments under

ATAA cannot receive other TAA benefits and services except for

relocation allowances and HCTC. This means a Trade-certified

worker who accepts ATAA is no longer eligible for the training

benefit or TRA.

Note: See Part E-200 for more information.


Appeals and


Boards must ensure that Workforce Center staff understands the

appeals process as it relates to TAA-funded services and informs

participants. Boards must establish procedures to ensure that any

request for Trade services or benefits that is not approved results in

a negative recommendation transmitted to the TWC Trade Unit.

The Trade Unit makes the final determination on any negative

determinations such as denial of training or waiver and will notify

the participant of the determination and the appeals process and

deadlines. Any failure to provide a requested benefit within a

suitable time is a denial of that benefit.
