How will the department identify individuals who are likely to exhaust benefits?—RCW 50.20.011.

(1) The department will use the profiling model described in this section to identify claimants who are likely to exhaust benefits and in need of job search assistance to obtain new employment.
(2) Model. Take all valid claims with a benefit year ending date that falls within a specified two-year time period. Screen out (a) members of unions participating in the referral union program (see WAC 192-210-100) and (b) claimants who do not have a job search requirement (employer attached, in approved training, or unemployed due to strike or lockout) after all wages for the claimant on the current claim have been received. For the remaining claimants with a job search requirement, statistically combine information on industry, occupation and other personal characteristics, and labor market characteristics to generate a numerical score indicating the likelihood of exhausting benefits before finding work. The scores may range from 0% (no likelihood of exhaustion) to 100% (certainty of exhaustion). Rank claimants based on their individual score from least likely to most likely to exhaust.
