Q: I became a displaced employee 6/1/11 and received unemployment. I was denied extended benefits.
I lost my job due to no fault of my own, became a displaced employee 6/1/11. I began receiving unemployment benefits until 5/26/12. I then was sent an ineligibility letter stating that in accordance with Virginia Code 60.2-614, I did not work 30 - 240 hours following the subsequent claim and will be ineligible until 99-99-99. How can I appeal this? I have reported all work searches weekly, been available and able to search for work, yet have not received any offers for part-time, temporary or full-time employment. I don't know what to do at this point.
A: Does the letter actually say "ineligible until 99-99-99?" If it does, you should contact whoever sent you the letter and ask them to send a new letter with the correct date. When you receive the new letter, write again.
