What is the maximum unemployment benefits in Virginia?

Benefit amounts range from $54.00 per week to $378.00 per week. When you file your claim you will receive a computer printout called a monetary determination, which lists your employers and wages for the base period, your weekly benefit amount, and your maximum total benefit.

Your benefit amount is computed using payrol.l information reported to the VEC by employers and it is based on the wages you received during a specific 12-month period called the base period. The base period is the first four of the last five completed calendar quarters before the effective date of your claim. A claim is effective on Sunday of the week in which the claim is filed.
