Unemployment.ohio.gov - Filing Weekly Claims

Once you have filed an application for unemployment compensation, you must tell ODJFS which weeks you are unemployed and want benefits. You accomplish this by filing claims for each week for which you want to receive benefits. Answer all questions honestly. Ohio law provides penalties, including fines and/or imprisonment, for fraud. If you do not file a timely claim for a week of unemployment, you will not receive benefits for that week.

For your convenience, you may file your weekly claims in two ways:

Online: You may file online at unemployment.ohio.gov. If you did not file your application online, the first time you access your claim online you will need to enter your User Name (social security number) and your PIN.

Automated Telephone System: You may call 1-877-OHIOJOB (644-6562) if you have a touch-tone telephone. To access the telephone system you will need your social security number and your PIN.

If you do not have access to either a touch-tone phone or the Internet, please contact your processing office. The name and phone number of that office was provided on the New Claim Instruction Sheet that was mailed to you when you filed your initial application.
