If you do not have internet access, call your processing center (the number
is located on correspondence you’ve received from the ODJFS). ODJFS business hours are 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday –

for unemployment benefits using Mass Layoff
# 2100032. Your last day worked is 02/19/2021 and your return to
work date is 03/01/2021.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to call your processing center or visit
the ODJFS web site a total of TWO (2)
1. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2021 – Open or restart application for benefits
2. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2021 – Claim layoff week (week ending 02/27/2021)
PLEASE NOTE: Since you
were recently laid off, you will likely have an issue with choosing the CORRECT
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 or they will open a claim for the WRONG
WEEK. Please keep trying to get through because we can’t fix the “wrong date” issue
here at the union hall. That is a glitch in the ODJFS’s system. Calling
your processing center is the only way to get that issue fixed.
