If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. If you have been separated from your employer, you may be eligible to receive benefits. Unemployment Insurance benefits are based on earned wages. At the time of filing you will need information including your social security number, your mailing address, current phone number, names, addresses and dates of employment of all your past employers for the last 2 years and your alien registration card if you're not a US citizen. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits and what additional information is needed when applying, find out how to file your Virgin Islands unemployment claim. As a reminder, unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. You must report any unemployment benefits you receive as part of your gross income on your taxes.
