At the U.S. Department of Labor, we realize that summer youth employment is a critical element of success for young people. Our Division of Youth Services supports the workforce system to promote meaningful summer employment that helps young people develop workforce and leadership skills to get and keep good jobs, connects them to long term economic opportunity, and provides them the chance to establish good savings behavior. This webinar will highlight Young America Saves' First-Time Workers Pilot Project which promotes saving at work for young adults, ages 16 to 24, as one effort to increase overall workplace saving. Webinar participants will learn how the summer job orientation process can be an ideal opportunity to motivate newly-hired workers to make a savings commitment, sign up for direct deposit, and open a new or use an existing bank account to save automatically, with very positive benefits.
The purpose of this webinar is to announce and promote the Military-State Data Exchange System (MSDES) for the Unemployment Compensation for Ex-servicemembers (UCX) program. MSDES is operational, and ready for states’ use.?In January 2013, the U.S. Department of Labor (Department) announced plans to improve, streamline, and automate UCX claims filing and billing activities (see Training and Employment Notice No. 20-12). Since then, the Department has been collaborating with states, the Department of Defense (DoD) and each military branch (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, the Coast Guard) and the Office of the Secretary of Defense; the National Association of State Workforce Agencies along with contractor staff from the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Federal Claims Control Center. Participating states greatly contributed to developing an electronic information exchange system that significantly makes UCX claims processing and billing more efficient for the states as well as the military branches. The system was pilot tested by several participant states and is now fully operational. MSDES allows the states and the military branches/DoD to electronically communicate with each other instead of being reliant on a paper-based system.
This webinar will provide states the background, specifications, and functional capabilities related to the MSDES.
