Virginia Unemployment Extension
Updated : February 11th, 2019
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.
Extended Benefits (EB) – Program Ended
Under federal law, as of 2019, EUC benefits are no longer available.
Extensions for collecting UI payments are in effect only during periods of high unemployment and only if the state or federal government take specific action to provide extended benefits.
