Changes in Unemployment Come During the Next Week in West Virginia

West Virginia MetroNews – More than 8,000 state residents receiving unemployment benefits under a pandemic-related program are in their last week of receiving those benefits. Read the full article.

Gov. Jim Justice announced last month that the additional $300 weekly benefit would end on June 19. WorkForce West Virginia acting Commissioner Scott Adkins said Tuesday independent contractors, self-employed residents and those who have been receiving extended weeks of pandemic unemployment benefits will all be coming off the rolls. Those on regular unemployment will go back to receiving regular weekly benefits.

Adkins said he hopes many of those residents going off unemployment will fill jobs that are available.
