“Benefit year” with respect to any individual means a period of fifty-two consecutive
weeks beginning with the first day of the week in which an individual files a new
valid claim for benefits except that the benefit year shall be fifty-three weeks if
filing of a new valid claim would result in overlapping any quarter of the base period
of a previously filed new claim. An initial claim for benefits filed in accordance with regulations prescribed by
the Commission under the provisions of this title shall be deemed to be a valid claim
within the purposes of this definition if the individual has been paid wages in his
base period sufficient to make him eligible for benefits under the provisions of Chapter
6 (§ 60.2-600 et seq.) of this title.
