UNEMPLOYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

***PLEASE NOTE: PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR ODJFS CORRESPONDENCE BOX. ODJFS IS DOING IDENTITY AUDITS ONCE AGAIN AND REQUIRING MEMBERS TO SUBMIT AND RESUBMIT THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION. IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR INFORMATION (WHETHER YOU’VE ALREADY DONE IT OR NOT) TIMELY, THEY WILL NOT PAY YOU. THE DOCUMENTS THEY ARE REQUIRING FOR THE AUDIT ARE YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE, SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND A VOIDED CHECK IF YOU RECEIVE YOUR PAYMENTS BY DIRECT DEPOSIT. THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN THESE FOUR DOCUMENTS SENT TO THEM BY THE DATE STATED IN THE CORRESPONDENCE.

Due to the parts shortage, the current layoff will be extended an additional week, returning to work on 11/15/2021. There will be no need to restart your claim unless your claim has expired.

On Sunday, 11/14/2021, log in and answer the questions again, just as you will on this Sunday, 11/07/2021.

Members with a last day worked 10/29/2021 will receive holiday pay for Veterans Day, November 11th and that holiday pay must be claimed. Example: 8 hours x your base rate of pay = what you claim for income on unemployment for week ending 11/13/2021.

Members with a last day worked of 11/05/2021 will receive holiday pay and short work week so there will be no need for them to open up a claim.

WAITING WEEK INFORMATION: Unit 1 OHAP members who were on layoff status and serving their waiting week will be denied unemployment. You must go to the ODJFS web site and print your unemployment benefit payment documents showing ZERO amount paid as well as the document under the “Claim Details” section, “View Claim Summary/Payment History” that shows “WW Served” as the most current status and take them to Human Resources to sign up for your SUB pay. If you aren’t able to print your paystub showing ZERO AMOUNT PAID, print ANYTHING from the ODJFS with your Social Security number on it and use that instead. Signing up for SUB this time will start your auto SUB for one year in the event of future layoffs.
