The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program is a federal entitlement program that assists U.S. workers who have lost or may lose their jobs as a result of foreign trade. This program provides adversely affected workers with opportunities to obtain the skills, credentials, resources, and support necessary to become reemployed.
If you are eligible, the TAA program offers a variety of benefits and services to support you in your search for reemployment. This includes:
- Job training
- Income support (Trade Readjustment Allowances)
- Job search and relocation allowances
- Wage supplement for certain re-employed trade-affected workers 50 years of age and older (Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance)
- Health Coverage Tax Credit for qualifying health insurance coverage. The Health Coverage Tax Credit is a federally funded tax credit that allows individuals to pay only a portion of their qualified health insurance. For information on HCTC see the IRS website
