Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This is an interstate benefits claim. You need to file with the interstate benefits office and that is who you need to actually call. Once you call the benefits office in VA they can update their computer system with the proper zip code to allow you to file your claims. However, we cannot change their system for you, it is something only the VA interstate unemployment claims office can do and as such you have to contact them directly and you need to make sure you account for that 3 hour time difference and wake up early to start calling them because as the day goes on they get busier.
