Covid-19 Unemployment Benefits

Please see the attached Press Release from the DeWine Administration.  All our members should be using the mass layoff code if their unemployment claims are related to the coronavirus (see attached release). This is meant to help expedite claims. There is a FAQ available at

Again, direct members to where they can file 24/7. It’s also possible to file by phone at (1-877-644-6562) or TTY at (888) 642-8203, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. but Husted said yesterday that the wait times are anywhere from 55-90 minutes to file by phone and strongly encouraged the online method if possible.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help.
