Additional Employee Resources and Information

During the furlough period, your medical benefits will remain intact. The Benefit Department has distributed follow up documentation related to your benefit elections and how to continue your coverage in your benefit plans. For more information, please contact 703-970-3668.

We have identified below a list of contacts that can assist you should you file for unemployment through your state of residence. We have also included contact information for your state Employment Commission where you can file for unemployment. Please be aware that if you file for unemployment and are later paid for the furloughed days, you will be required to repay to the state any earnings you received through the state unemployment agency.

If at any time during the furlough you need additional assistance in filling out the unemployment paperwork, we strongly encourage you to reach out to your contacts within operations and/or your Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist.
