Virginia Unemployment Extension

As per the current federal law, no more benefits will be paid under any Tier of EUC post December 29, 2013. After the said date, the State of Virginia will only provide benefits under the regular Unemployment Insurance program which lasts for a period of up to 26 weeks.

When you say that the reason behind job separation is getting “laid-off” you must understand that it means that the company dismissed you because there was not enough work for you and could not afford to pay you any longer.
