AS 23.20.409. Definitions For AS 23.20.406
In AS 23.20.406
- (1) "applicable benefit year" means, with respect to an individual, the current benefit year if, at the time an initial
claim for extended benefits is filed, the individual has an unexpired benefit year only in the state against which the
claim is filed, or, in any other case, the individual's most recent benefit year; the most recent benefit year, for an
individual who has unexpired benefit years in more than one state when the initial claim for extended benefits is
filed, is the benefit year with the latest ending date or, if the benefit years have the same ending date, the benefit
year in which the latest continued claim for regular compensation was filed; extended benefits are not payable under
this section unless the "applicable benefit year" was a benefit year established under this chapter;
- (2) "eligibility period" of an individual means the period consisting of the weeks in the individual's benefit year which
begin in an extended benefit period and, if the individual's benefit year ends within the extended benefit period, any
weeks thereafter which begin in that period;
- (3) "exhaustee" means an individual who, with respect to any week of unemployment in the individual's eligibility period,
has no right to unemployment benefits or allowances, as the case may be, under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act
or under other federal laws which are specified in regulations issued by the United States Secretary of Labor and has
not received and is not seeking unemployment benefits under the unemployment compensation law of Canada, but if the
individual is seeking these benefits and the appropriate agency finally determines that the individual is not entitled
to benefits under that law the individual is considered an exhaustee; and either
- (A) has received, before that week of unemployment, all of the regular benefits that were available to the individual
under this chapter or any other law, including dependents' allowances and benefits payable to federal civilian
employees and ex-servicemen under 5 U.S.C. 8501-8525, in the individual's current benefit year that includes that week;
however, for the purposes of this paragraph, an individual is considered to have received all of the regular benefits
that were available to the individual even though the individual may subsequently be determined to be entitled to added
regular benefits as a result of a pending appeal with respect to wages in covered employment that were not considered
in the original monetary determination to be in the individual's benefit year; or
- (B) the individual's benefit year having expired before that week, has no or insufficient wages in covered employment on
the basis of which the individual could establish a new benefit year that would include that week.
- (4) "extended benefit period" means a period which
- (A) begins with the third week after a week for which there is a state "on" indicator; and
- (B) ends with either of the following weeks, whichever occurs later:
- (i) the third week after the first week for which there is a state "off" indicator; or
- (ii) the 13th consecutive week of that period;
- (5) "extended benefits" means benefits, including benefits payable to federal civilian employees and to ex-servicemen
under 5 U.S.C. 8501-8525, payable to an individual under the provisions of AS 23.20.406 - 23.20.409 for weeks of unemployment in the individual's
- (6) "regular benefits" means benefits payable to an individual under this chapter or under any other law, including
benefits payable to federal civilian employees and to ex-servicemen under 5 U.S.C. 8501-8525, other than extended
