Unemployment Insurance Appeals Time Lapse & Average Age of Appeals
Each month, states report data on the rate at which they are disposing of Appeals and the age of Appeals as reported in the Employment and Training Administrative (ETA) 5130 – Benefit Appeals Report; ETA 9054 – Appeals Time Lapse; and ETA 9055 – Appeals Case Aging.
ETA 5130: Benefit Appeals Report
The source of appeals case workload data in each state under the regular programs of state unemployment insurance, unemployment compensation for Federal employees, and unemployment compensation for ex-service members. The data provides details on how appeals are being handled, the issues involved, and the extent to which appeals authorities’ decisions reverse or sustain determinations or decisions previously made.
ETA 9054L & H: Lower and Higher Authority Appeals Time Lapse
Contains monthly information on the length of time it takes states to issue lower authority and higher authority appeals decisions. Time lapse in this report is measured starting with the file date of the lower or higher authority appeal, and ending with the date of either appeal decision.
ETA 9055L & H: Lower and Higher Authority Appeals Case Aging
Provides monthly state data on the age of the inventory of lower and higher authority single claimant appeals cases that have been filed but not yet decided. This report documents the average age of pending appeals cases from the date an appeal was filed through the end of the month covered by the report. States calculate the average age of pending appeal cases within their state system, then transmit this data using this report. No additional calculation is done at the federal level.
