File for unemployment benefits online at http://unemployment.ohio.gov. If you do
not have internet access, call your processing center (the number is located on
correspondence you’ve received from the ODJFS). ODJFS business hours are 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday – Friday, except holidays. Please
follow the instructions CAREFULLY below:
File for unemployment benefits
using Mass Layoff # 2100183. Your last day worked is 05/21/2021 and your return to
work date for unemployment purposes is
05/31/2021 (your actual
return to work date is 6/1/21 because 5/31 is the Memorial Day holiday).
PLEASE NOTE: You will
need to call your processing center or visit the ODJFS web site * T W I C
E * - the first time to reopen or restart your application
for benefits and the second time to claim your layoff week (see below):
1. SUNDAY, MAY 23, 2021 – Open or restart application for benefits
2. SUNDAY, MAY 30, 2021 – Claim layoff week (week ending 05/29/2021)
If you have any doubt at all about
what you’re doing throughout the filing process, please hang up or log out and
call the union hall for assistance. It is easier for us to help you file than
it is to get your claims fixed.
mistakes made by members are:
1. Filling out the
information about the union hiring hall. UAW LOCAL 2000 IS NOT A HIRING HALL.
Please do not check ANY boxes or fill in ANY information at all
in the union section.
2. Answering “no” to
the job search question. Whether or not you have a mass layoff number, if
they ask for jobs you applied for, you must provide that information. PLEASE DO NOT EVER ANSWER “NO” TO THAT
QUESTION IF IT IS ASKED OF YOU OR YOU WILL NOT GET PAID.
3. Forgetting to
file for benefits or going in once to reopen the claim but not returning the
second time to actually claim the week. We give complete step by step
instructions for filing and it’s important that members follow them.
Please follow instructions
carefully to avoid
your benefits being held
