Question I live in Va. I mostly work out of state, for the last 4 years. During which I claim my unemployment from Pa normally. For some reaspn the employer I work for has paid my unemployment for the last year to Va even all my out of state work. now Im out of town working for months at a time and pay state taxes on my payroll to the state I'm working in. My Question is, is there a way to retract what has been done and pay the respective state there share or at least Pa so i can claim my benifits from there. Im sure you know that va unemployment is $100 to 200 a week less than other states, at least the ones I work in.
Answer James - What you receive in benefits is determined by your wages, not by what your employer paid. If PA is the state in which you spent the most time, file a claim in PA but let them know that you worked in other states, too. They'll figure out what you are entitled to receive. Retracting things is not necessary.
