Please follow the unemployment instructions below
to avoid your benefits being held up.
ATTENTION NEW MEMBERS: If you intend to
file benefits for a partial week you will file without a mass layoff number.
Please contact your processing center to file.
ALL MEMBERS: Do not claim any profit
sharing as earnings when you claim your layoff week. Also, if you get to a point
that you’re not sure how to answer something, exit the system and contact your
processing center on Monday.
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 # 2200062. Your last day worked is 03/04/2022 and your return to
work date is 03/14/2022. 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, MARCH 6, 2022 – Open
or restart APPLICATION for benefits EFFECTIVE 3/6/22. OPTION 1: IF ANY
OTHER DATE BESIDES 3/6/22 IS OFFERED, RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU, LOG OUT (OR HANG
UP IF CALLING TO FILE) AND CALL YOUR PROCESSING CENTER AND ASK THEM TO REOPEN
YOUR APPLICATION FOR BENEFITS EFFECTIVE 3/6/22.
When you call, please do not tell them you want to “file a claim” or they will
pull one of your weeks hanging out from your last layoff and file it, meaning
there will be an overpayment because ANY OTHER WEEK BESIDES 3/6/22 IS NOT THE
CORRECT DATE. OPTION 2: IF WEEK ENDING 3/5/22 IS THE ONLY WEEK SHOWING,
YOU CAN WAIT UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY 3/13/22 AND BY THEN WEEK 3/12/22 SHOULD
BE SHOWING. CLICK ON 3/12/22 AND CHOOSE OPTION TO RESTART AND FILE WEEKLY CLAIM
FOR WEEK ENDING 3/12/22. IT SHOULD ALLOW YOU TO BOTH OPEN YOUR APPLICATION AND FILE A CLAIM FOR WEEK ENDING 3/12/22
IN THE SAME SESSION.
2. SUNDAY, MARCH 13, 2022 – Claim
layoff week (week ending 03/12/2022).
Please DO NOT do these things when filing:
1. DO NOT 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. DO NOT 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 need to write FORD MOTOR COMPANY AND 2200062 IN THE JOB FIELD.
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.
WAITING WEEK 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.
