Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measures the timeliness of payment of unemployment benefits for the first week claimant meets legal criteria to receive benefits.  The federal requirement is 87.0%.  Kansas ensures timely payment to provide this temporary benefit to individuals in order to prevent economic insecurity that occurs from involuntary unemployment.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
