Veterans from all periods of military service are eligible for job referral, job training and job placement assistance through the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC).
Veterans may access these employment services through a statewide network of VEC offices. We also work with those that are currently transitioning out of the military.
The Unemployment Insurance Claims press release, published every Thursday, reports unemployment claims data for the most current reporting week. This includes maps showing the week-over-week changes and claims by locality. Additional data is posted in a downloadable spreadsheet at the bottom of the page including initial and continued claims by locality and Workforce Area.
To see demographic data of those who are claiming unemployment insurance in Virginia, visit the U.I. Claims Data Dashboard.
