House Bill 421 – Analysis

HOUSE BILL 421                                                    SPONSOR: Rep. C.A. Harris



The legislation amends the Act of December 5, 1936 (2nd Sp. Sess., 1937 P.L. 2897, No. 1), known as the Unemployment Compensation Law, to prohibit certain state annuitants from collecting unemployment compensation following a temporary return to service.


Section 402 of the Unemployment Compensation Law is amended to provide that any claimant is ineligible for compensation due to separation from work that is meant to preserve the claimant’s pension, annuity or similar periodic payment rights.


The legislation is identical to Senate Bill 297(Vance) which was reported by the Committee 10-0 on April 16 and passed 49-0 by the Senate on April 30.
