Jobless Virginians Waiting for $300 in Extra Weekly Benefits: Report

Unemployed workers in Virginia will have to wait until mid-October for the state-approved $300 in extra weekly benefits after the Virginia Employment Commission changed its date to begin payments.

Eligible Virginians should have received text message instructions for verifying they were out of work due to the coronavirus pandemic, a local ABC News affiliate reported Monday. Once verified, the payments will be retroactive in one lump sum from Aug. 1 to Sept. 5 when the Lost Wages Assistance program was in effect.

Claimants, who must be eligible for at least $100 a week in unemployment benefits, will not need to file a separate application to receive the federal supplement, according to VEC spokeswoman Joyce Fogg, who told the affiliate in early September that roughly 29,700 recipients won’t be eligible for the additional benefits.
