What Is TAA?
Trade Adjustment Assistance, or TAA, provides benefits to workers who lose their jobs, or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of increased imports, or whose jobs were exported offshore ("trade-affected workers"). The TAA benefits include a variety of reemployment services designed to help trade-affected workers prepare for and obtain suitable employment. The TAA program seeks to provide workers who are adversely affected by trade with the opportunity to obtain the skills, resources, and support they need to become reemployed.
Who Is Eligible?
Workers who are separated on or after the impact date of a certified company are eligible to apply for the TAA benefits. The period of the certification is 2 years from the date the layoff was certified.
