WAITING WEEK INFORMATION: 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. Signing up for SUB this time will start your auto SUB for one year.


MEMBERS WHO HAVE RUN OUT OF UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: Once you have reached your unemployment benefit limit, the ODJFS system will no longer allow you to file for additional weeks. At that point, IN ORDER TO GET YOUR SUB PAY, you must go to the ODJFS web site each week you are laid off and print the document under the “Claim Details” section titled, “View Claim Summary/Payment History” (the same one that shows “WW Served”) and legibly write in the week ending dates for which you are filing for SUB pay at the bottom of that sheet. You will also need to print up a correspondence from ODJFS that lists your Social Security number and then turn both pages into Human Resources (total of two pages).
