Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services announced Monday that many unemployment claimants in Ohio will soon begin receiving the $300 weekly supplement. 

ODJFS said pandemic unemployment programs and benefits have been extended through March 13, 2021. Individuals whose CARES Act benefits expired as of December 26 may file benefits retroactive to the week beginning December 27. 

Additionally, people who receive Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) will soon be able to resume filing weekly claims for benefits.

ODJFS said they will automatically recalculate PUA and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) claims to notify people when they are able to certify for their next benefit payment.
