I'm on SSA and have worked part time at a place for almost 2 years my place of work had a mandatory shutdown on march 23 2020.

I was denied my unemployment due to insufficient wages in Virginia. However other part time employees got there's I work 12 to 15 hours a week. Is this normal for the corno19 virus

Hi.  In Virginia, they don't go by what you were earning when you lost your job.  They use a 5 quarter base period that generally lags about three months before your lay-off date.  You can use the calculator below to figure out the base period.   If you got laid off in March of this year, the base period is October 2018 - September 2019.  During that time, you had to have made at least $3,000 in two of those quarters.

The new COVID program is called Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and you may be eligible under that.  But the state says they haven't received federal guidance on this yet, so they haven't started an application process.

So keep an eye on their new PUA.  You might qualify for that.   Good luck and stay safe.
