RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Employment Commission announced that the U.S. Department of Labor has told them that the Extended Benefits Program in Virginia will end on Saturday, Nov. 21.

This program entitled claimants 50-percent of the total amount they received on their claim for regular unemployment benefits.

The last effective date for an EB initial, additional, or reopened claim will be Nov. 15. This means people who were told they could revive certain entitlement may not receive their full amount.
