This program is for individuals who have been separated from employment with the united states government, such as IRS, U.S. Postal Service, and TVA.
The claimant must have been a federal civilian employee to file under the UCFE program.
The claimant must report to a local office to file a claim, and present proof of employment, such as check stubs, W-2 forms, a separation notice, SF-50-b (notification of personnel action) and Standard Form 8. The claimant must also bring two items for identification, including their social security card.
The claimant will be notified in writing of the approval or denial of benefits if the separation is other than a lack of work.
