Important: After you have filed
If you have filed an unemployment insurance application (UI), you must then file a weekly claim for each week or you will NOT be paid!
VEC recommends you do this on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday of each week if you remain unemployed and want to be paid for the prior week.
You can complete and submit your weekly UI payment request by calling 1-800-897-5630. You can also find more information by visiting our website at vec.virginia.gov.
