Unemployment Resources for Ohio Residents


In an effort to streamline claims processing and expedite payment, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has implemented a new weekly claim filing process, starting on April 26, for Ohioans who have been approved to receive unemployment benefits. Individuals filing weekly claims should do so on the day of the week based on the first letter of their last name:

  • A through H: Sunday
  • I through P: Monday
  • Q through Z: Tuesday
  • All – Wednesday through Saturday.
