CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF LABOR – TRADE ADJUSTMENT ASSISTANCE (TAA)


Jan. Feb. Mar. Apr. May Jun.
TRAINING WAIVER REVIEW Circle Month:
Jul. Aug. Sep. Oct. Nov. Dec. Year

Name SSN
To remain eligible for Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA) and claim the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) as a TAA recipient after
the applicable training enrollment or waiver deadline, a worker who has not completed Trade Act-approved training must either be
enrolled in such training or covered by a waiver of the training requirement (prior to the deadline, no waiver or training enrollment is
required). Federal Trade Act regulations require that all training waivers be reviewed at least every 30 days to determine if the
conditions existing at the time of waiver issuance continue to exist. In the event conditions have changed and training becomes
feasible and appropriate, the waiver must be revoked. Failure to comply with the monthly waiver review process will result in waiver
revocation and jeopardize your eligibility for TRA and HCTC.

Complete and return this form on the first fifteenth of each month as directed by your Labor Department career
development specialist. The form must be received within ten days of the due date. Begin with the month following
waiver issuance.
