20 CFR 615.13 - Announcement of the beginning and ending of Extended Benefit Periods.
(a) State indicators. Upon receipt of the notice required by § 615.12(e) which is acceptable to the Department, the Department shall publish in the Federal Register a notice of the State agency head's determination that there is an “on” or an “off” indicator in the State, as the case may be, the name of the State and the beginning or ending of the Extended Benefit Period, whichever is appropriate. The Department shall also notify appropriate news media, the heads of all other State agencies, and the Regional Administrators of the Employment and Training Administration of the State agency head's determination of such State “on” or “off” indicator and of its effect.
(b) Publicity by State. Whenever a State agency head determines that there is an “on” indicator in the State by reason of which an Extended Benefit Period will begin in the State, or an “off” indicator by reason of which an Extended Benefit Period in the State will end, the head of the State agency shall promptly announce the determination through appropriate news media in the State and notify the Department in accordance with § 615.12(e). Such announcement shall include the beginning or ending date of the Extended Benefit Period, whichever is appropriate. In the case of an Extended Benefit Period that is about to begin, the announcement shall describe clearly the unemployed individuals who may be eligible for Extended Benefits during the period, and in the case of an Extended Benefit Period that is about to end, the announcement shall also describe clearly the individuals whose entitlement to Extended Benefits will be terminated.
(c) Notices to individuals.
(1) Whenever there has been a determination that an Extended Benefit Period will begin in a State, the State agency shall provide prompt written notice of potential entitlement to Extended Benefits to each individual who has established a benefit year in the State that will not end prior to the beginning of the Extended Benefit Period, and who exhausted all rights under the State law to regular compensation before the beginning of the Extended Benefit Period.
(2) The State agency shall provide such notice promptly to each individual who begins to claim sharable regular benefits or who exhausts all rights under the State law to regular compensation during an Extended Benefit Period, including exhaustion by reason of the expiration of the individual's benefit year.
(3) The notices required by paragraphs (c) (1) and (2) of this section shall describe those actions required of claimants for sharable regular compensation and Extended Benefits and those disqualifications which apply to such benefits which are different from those applicable to other claimants for regular compensation which is not sharable.
(4) Whenever there has been a determination that an Extended Benefit Period will end in a State, the State agency shall provide prompt written notice to each individual who is currently filing claims for Extended Benefits of the forthcoming end of the Extended Benefit Period and its effect on the individual's right to Extended Benefits.
