The NA Work Registration script FAA-1786A-FLY-PD (10-20) includes detailed information about the NA work requirements. The FAA-1786A-FLY-PD (10-20) script must be used during the interview to explain the NA work requirements. The FAA-1786A-FLY-PD (10-20) script is found in the Documents Center.
Case file(g) documentation is sufficient for work registration. Documentation by the worker must include: NA work requirements explained, and NA participants are registered for work, unless exempt.
When NA benefits are approved at initial, renewal, and reported change the worker must request and send the NA Work Requirements Notice (F040).
NA disqualifications are imposed when a non-exempt participant fails to comply with the NA work requirements.
When a reported change causes a participant to no longer be eligible for a work exemption see Registered and Referred.
