There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

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.

Due to program changes, there are multiple versions of the TAA program. Individual benefits vary depending on the petition number.
