Unemployment Compensation Benefit Fund

Such fund shall consist of all amounts withdrawn from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund, upon requisition of the Director of the Employment Department, except as provided in ORS 657.812 (Use of moneys credited to Unemployment Trust Fund by Secretary of the Treasury).
(2)This fund shall be used solely in the payment of benefits under this chapter, exclusive of administration, and in the payment of unemployment insurance under any agreement with another governmental agency whereby the latter will reimburse the fund for such expenditure; provided that such use shall be consistent with the Federal Unemployment Tax Act.
(3)The Unemployment Compensation Benefit Fund shall be the sole and exclusive source for the payment of benefits payable under this chapter. Such benefits shall be deemed to be due and payable only to the extent that contributions, with increments thereon, actually collected and credited to the fund are available therefor.
(4)The Unemployment Compensation Benefit Fund shall be held and administered by the State Treasurer in the same manner as provided in ORS 657.830 (State Treasurer as custodian of funds) (1).
