Did you lose your job to foreign outsourcing?

Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) helps trade-affected workers who have lost their jobs as a result of increased imports or shifts in production out of the United States.

TAA program services and benefits are provided to help eligible workers get back to work. To obtain reemployment services and benefits under this program, the group of workers must first file a petition with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance requesting certification as workers adversely affected by foreign trade. If the petition is certified, each worker in the group must then apply for individual services and benefits through their local Kentucky Career Center office​ to determine individual eligibility for reemployment services and benefits.
