The additional weeks of unemployment benefits are provided through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, according to the release from Workforce WV, and will be available to individuals who previously collected state or federal unemployment compensation but have exhausted those benefits.  Governor Justice said those whose unemployment benefits have ended can apply beginning today (Wednesday)…

Officials said that applicants may apply for the PEUC extension online by visiting the Workforce WV website after 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 6 and clicking the “Apply for PEUC Extra 13 Weeks Here” tile on the front page.
