Unemployment Benefits

The Governor has issued an executive order, which will grant the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services the authority to accept and grant requests for unemployment compensation suspending the normal 1-week waiting period.

This order will also give relief to applicants who are not offered paid leave through their job, as well as those who have been quarantined by a medical professional, their employer, or whose employers must temporarily close. Those who apply for unemployment under these circumstances will be exempt from the requirement that they are actively seeking work.

For more information, please go to Unemployment.Ohio.gov or JFS.Ohio.gov/Coronavirus or call 1-877-644-6562
