Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Fund
The Supplemental Unemployment Benefits (SUB) Fund was established in 1967 in recognition of the often sporadic nature of employment in our industry. It provides unemployment benefits to those members who work i.e. under the Heavy & Highway, Surveyor and Building contracts. Members who perform work under the Plant, Permanent Shop and Equipment Dealer contracts receive vacation pay in lieu of SUB.
You should always file your SUB claim within 30 days (from the pay date of your state benefit), even if you are not sure whether it will be paid. If, for example, your employer is delinquent and you do not currently have enough hours to be eligible for SUB, provided you file your claims on a timely basis, we will honor them when your employer remits the hours.
The Board of Trustees determines the amount of SUB Fund benefits at the beginning of each SUB Fund Benefit Year. The 2016-2017 SUB Benefit year begins with week ending November 12, 2016 and will run through April 29th 2016. The weekly benefit amount will be $145.00.
The website address where you can retrieve your documentation for the SUB office is: www.ctdol.state.ct.us Click on "Unemployment Benefits", then click on "on-line services", then "file a weekly continued claim online". You will need your social security number and the 4 digit pin number that you use when you file you claim. We will (only) accept the "Continued Claim Inquiry" and the "Payment History" (we cannot accept bank statements or bank account print outs)
