NOTICE	 TO	 WORKERS	 	
 
Every	 day many	 unemployed	 workers	 tell	 us	 that	 unemployment	 insurance	 is due	 them	 "because	 	
they have paid for it."	 This is not	 true in Virginia.	 There are no deductions from your paycheck for	 	
unemployment	 insurance. 	 Employers'	 taxes	 are	 deposited	 in a trust	 fund	 from	 which	 	
unemployment insurance benefits are paid.	 Do not	 confuse unemployment	 insurance with Old Age	 	
and	 Survivors	 Insurance	 to which	 both	 you	 and	 your	 employer	 contribute.	 	
 
YOU	 MAY	 APPLY FOR	 UNEMPLOYMENT	 INSURANCE	 BENEFITS	 IF:	 	
• 	You	 are	 totally	 unemployed,	 or 	
• 	You	 are	 working	 at reduced wages	 and	 hours,	 	
 
IF TOTALLY	 UNEMPLOYED,	 ON	 A TEMPORARY	 LAYOFF,	 OR	 IF WORKING	 REDUCED	 HOURS:	 	
The	 first	 week	 you	 are	 unemployed,	 register	 for	 work, and	 file	 a claim	 for	 benefits.	 You	 can	 file	 your	 	
claim online at 	www.vec.virginia.gov	  or by calling our Customer Contact Center at 1	-866	-832	-2363.	 	
If you	 are	 totally	 unemployed,	 you	 must	 register	 for	 work	 online	 at 	www.vawc.virginia.gov	 . 	
 
TO	 BE	 ELIGIBLE	 FOR	 BENEFITS,	 THE	 LAW	 REQUIRES	 THAT	 YOU:	 	
• 	File	 a claim	 with	 the	 Virginia	 Employment	 Commission.	 	
• 	Have	 earned	 sufficient	 wages	 from	 employers	 who	 are	 subject	 to the Virginia	 	
Unemployment	 Compensation	 Act	 or any	 other	 State	 within	 your	 Base	 Period.	 	
• 	Must	 be	 unemployed	 through	 no	 fault	 of your	 own.	 	
• 	Must	 be	 able	 and	 available	 for	 work and	 making	 an	 active	 search	 for	 work.	 	
• 	Continue	 to report	 as	 instructed	 by	 the	 Virginia	 Employment	 Commission.	 	
 
You	 cannot	 be	 paid	 unemployment	 benefits	 until	 you	 have	 filed	 your	 claim	 and	 have	 met	 all of	 the	 	
eligibility	 requirements.	 To	 speed	 payment	 of benefits,	 you	 should	 file	 your	 claim	 as soon	 as	 you	 	
become	 unemployed	 or your	 hours	 are	 reduced.	 If you	 have	 any questions	 about	 your	 rights	 and	 	
responsibilities	 under	 the	 Virginia	 Unemployment	 Compensation	 Act,	 visit	 our	 website,	 	
or call	 our	 Customer	 Contact	 Center	 at 1	-866	-832	-2363.	 	
 
THE	 LAW	 REQUIRES	 EMPLOYERS	 TO	 POST	 THIS	 NOTICE	 IN A PLACE	 VISIBLE	 TO	 All	 WORKERS.	 	
 	
An	 Equal	 Opportunity	 Employer/Program	 	
                          	Auxiliary services	 are	 available	 upon to	 individuals	 with disabilities.
