Please follow the unemployment
instructions below carefully to avoid your benefits being held up.
File for unemployment benefits online at http://unemployment.ohio.gov. 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 – Friday, except holidays.
File for unemployment benefits using Mass Layoff # 2200043.
Your last day worked is 02/11/2022
and your return to work date is 02/21/2022.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to call your processing
center or visit the ODJFS web site TWO
TIMES to file for
unemployment benefits: The first time to reopen or restart your application
for benefits and the second time to claim your layoff weeks (see below):
1. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2022 – Open or restart application for benefits
2. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2022 – Claim layoff week (week ending 02/19/2022)
Please DO NOT do
these things when filing:
1. Fill 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 section.
2. Answer “no” to the job search question. Whether or not you have
a mass layoff number, if they ask for jobs you applied for, you must provide
If you have any doubt at
all about what you’re doing throughout the filing process, 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.
INFORMATION: Unit 1 OHAP 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. If you aren’t able to print your paystub showing ZERO AMOUNT PAID,
print ANYTHING from the ODJFS with your Social Security number on it and use
that instead. Signing up for SUB this time will start your auto SUB for one
year in the event of future layoffs.
MEMBERSHIP MEETING: The next General Membership Meeting is Sunday, February 13th at
2:30 PM at UAW Local 2000, 3151 Abbe
Road in Sheffield Village. Please attend and be informed.
