AS 23.20.085. Interstate Benefit Payments.
- (a) The department shall enter into reciprocal arrangements with appropriate and duly authorized agencies of other states
or of the federal government, or both, so that potential rights to benefits under this chapter may constitute the basis
for payment of claims by another state or by the federal government and potential rights to benefits accumulated under
the law of another state or of the federal government may constitute the basis for the payment of claims by this state.
These claims shall be paid under the provisions of this chapter or under the provisions of the law of the other state
or of the federal government or under that combination of the provisions of both laws as is agreed upon as being fair

another state or of the federal government, and provision for reimbursement from the fund for those claims paid by
another state or by the federal government on the basis of wages and service subject to this chapter. Reimbursements
paid from the fund under this section are considered to be benefits for the purposes of this chapter.

individual's wages and employment covered under this chapter with the individual's wages and employment covered under
the unemployment insurance laws of other states which are approved by the United States Secretary of Labor in

- (1) applying the base period of a single state law to a claim involving the combining of an individual's wages and
employment covered under two or more state unemployment insurance laws, and
- (2) avoiding the duplicate use of wages and employment by reason of the combining.
