How is a Target Group Determined for a New Hire?

The characteristics questions that the new hire answers on Form 9061 are all related to specific WOTC target groups. Therefore, the new hire’s “yes” responses indicate the target groups for which he or she may be eligible. Some target groups have several requirements (Veteran, Unemployed Veteran, and Disconnected Youth).

If the new hire does not indicate he or she meets ALL requirements of a target group by the appropriate “yes” responses, then that target group will not be considered for processing.

EXAMPLE: The Veteran target group has multiple requirements. If the new hire indicates a “yes” response on Form 9061 to being a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, but does not indicate a “yes” response to any other required criteria, then he or she does not meet the basic requirements of the Veteran target group. Therefore, that target group would not be considered for processing.
