The U.S. Department of Labor today certified for release $62,817,683 in unemployment insurance modernization incentive funds to the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Virginia qualified for the funds available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act by allowing workers to use their more recent earnings to be eligible for benefits. Virginia’s approved application will be posted at the department’s Employment and Training Administration Website..........
“Virginia has a UI program that better meets the needs of the 21st century workforce,” says Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “By using recent wages when determining eligibility for benefits, Virginia enables unemployed workers who are relatively new entrants to the workforce to get the assistance they need and deserve.”
