Direct Link to West Virginia Unemployment

From West Virginia's Website:
Unemployment insurance benefits provide temporary financial assistance to workers unemployed through no fault of their own that meet West Virginia's eligibility requirements. In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must have West Virginia wages during the past 12 to 18 months and have earned at least a minimum amount of wages as determined by West Virginia's guidelines. You must also be able to work and available for work each week that you are collecting benefits. Eligibility for unemployment compensation will be determined during the process of filing a claim. Individuals who are unsure if they qualify should still apply.

Unemployment compensation claimants can file weekly claim certifications online, view claim information, including six weeks of payment history, and apply for direct deposit of their benefits. Employers can file quarterly wage reports, pay contributions and delinquent payments online, and register for electronic submission of separation information.

Appeals made to the Unemployment Compensation Division are heard and decided upon by the Board of Review.
