In every layoff, we have members who either completely
forget to file for benefits or go in once to reopen the claim but don’t go back
in to actually claim the week. IF YOU DO
EITHER OF THESE THINGS, YOU WILL LIKELY NOT RECEIVE UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION
BENEFITS FOR THAT WEEK.

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
# 2100110. Your last day worked is 04/09/2021 and your return to
work date is 06/28/2021.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to call your processing center or visit
the ODJFS web site once to reopen your application for benefits and then go
back in each Sunday and claim your weeks until the layoff ends.
1. SUNDAY, APRIL 11, 2021 – Open or restart application for benefits
2. SUNDAY, APRIL 18, 2021 – Claim layoff week (week ending 04/17/2021), then
continue filing claims each Sunday until you return to work.
PLEASE NOTE: We are
having problems getting member’s claims fixed once they are filed wrong. If you
have any doubt at all about what you’re doing, please hang up or log out and
call the union hall for assistance. It is easier for us to help you file than
it is to get your claims fixed.
Two frequent mistakes made by members
1. Filling out the information about the
union hiring hall. UAW LOCAL 2000 IS NOT A HIRING HALL. Please do not
check ANY boxes or fill in ANY information at all in the union
2. Answering “no” to the job search
question when you have a mass layoff number. IF YOU HAVE A MASS LAYOFF
NUMBER AND THEY ASK YOU FOR THE JOBS YOU APPLIED FOR, TYPE THE FOLLOWING
INFORMATION for both jobs: OHIO ASSEMBLY PLANT, 650 MILLER ROAD, AVON LAKE,
OH 44012, WALK IN, HIRED, CHOOSE A DATE OFFERED IN THE DROP DOWN MENU. PLEASE
DO NOT ANSWER NO TO THAT QUESTION IF IT IS ASKED OF YOU.
