    On January 20, we notified customers by email about upcoming changes to the Office of Economic Adjustment's (OEA) eGrant business systems. The changes to OEA.gov and our Economic Adjustment Data System (EADS) are now underway to improve your customer experience and the system went offline at 12:01 a.m. on January 30, 2016. The system will remain offline until February 25, 2016.

    OEA values your continued patience and partnership during this transition as we work to provide you with better customer service. Stay tuned to oea.gov, your inbox, and OEA on social media for more information. Please contact your project manager if you require further information.

Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees Program

U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of Labor

Federal civilian employees may qualify for the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) program. UCFE has the same terms and conditions as regular State unemployment insurance programs. State unemployment insurance agencies will be able to answer questions about eligibility, duration, and amount of benefits, as well as procedures for filing a UCFE claim (see also the Unemployment Insurance Locator described above).
