Unemployment Insurance Recovery Core Measures

The recovery rate is the ratio of the amount of improper overpayments recovered to the adjusted amount of improper overpayments established (established overpayments minus overpayments waived). The amounts established and/or recovered can be generated from the regular and any of the temporary UI programs.

The measure is computed using data provided on the ETA Overpayment Detection and Recovery reports (ETA 227 and 227 Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) ).


Recovery Rate = Amount of UI Overpayments Recovered
Adjusted Overpayments Established
x 100

Note: For states that utilize the Treasury Offset Program (TOP), recovery rates can be greater than 100% due in part to TOP recovering overpayments from any prior reporting period, in addition to the current reporting period.
