  • Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) is unsubsidized employment.
  • Due to a two-quarter lag in unemployment insurance (UI) wage data, information for this indicator is reported in the fourth quarter after exit.

  • When reporting wages verified through other methods than UI wage data (including SWIS), the VR agency must implement supplemental wage policies.
