for unemployment benefits using Mass
Layoff # 2100029. Your
last day worked is 02/12/2021 and
your return to work date is 02/22/2021.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to call your processing center or visit
the ODJFS web site a total of TWO (2)
1. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2021 – OPEN OR RESTART APPLICATION FOR BENEFITS
2. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2021 – CLAIM LAYOFF WEEK (WEEK ENDING 02/20/2021)
PLEASE NOTE: Since you were laid off recently, you will likely have
an issue with choosing the week you need to reopen your application. If the
correct date IS NOT listed, hang up or log out and call your processing center because they will need to reset your
weeks. When you call them, be sure to tell them you need them to reopen your application. While getting
through is difficult, the alternative of not getting paid for the week will
probably be more difficult. Please keep trying to get through because we can’t
fix the issue here at the union hall. Calling your processing center is the
only way to get that fixed.
