Extended Benefits Program ends Saturday
The Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) announced Wednesday it has been notified by the U. S. Department of Labor that the Extended Benefits (EB) Program in Virginia will end on Saturday, Nov. 21.
This program entitled claimants 50% of the total amount they received on their claim for regular unemployment benefits.
The last effective date for an EB initial, additional, or reopened claim will be Nov. 15. With the program ending, some claimants may not receive their full entitlement.
The VEC will be sending out messages to claimants through their Gov2Go account and will advise those affected claimants of the end of the EB program.
