RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) is now offering appointments to help people speak with representatives about their unemployment claims.

The VEC says appointments are very limited and not guaranteed to lead to any resolution.

The agency also urges you to only schedule one appointment based on the location of your permanent residence.

In addition, the VEC warns that the number they will be calling from could show up on your phone as unknown or restricted.
