Virginia Unemployment Benefits Delayed Again

An additional $300 in unemployment funding has been delayed again after the Virginia Employment Commission admitted to a system outage and federal bank holiday earlier this week that affected the distribution of the money.

Although VEC officials on Thursday released Lost Wages Assistance funds that still have to be processed, an agency spokesperson said those with direct deposit could have received their money by late Thursday while others might have to wait up to three business days, Richmond’s ABC News affiliate reported.

“Our staff were working hard to try to get it to happen earlier and it just didn’t sync. The programs didn’t mesh together,” the spokesperson told the affiliate.

Nevertheless, while some claimants told the news outlet that they received an email notification about the second delay, others complained they were left in the dark.
