FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT
If you have been laid off (even temporarily) or had your hours reduced because of COVID-19, click here to file for unemployment. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has been working around the clock to streamline performance and boost capacity by adding servers so the online claims system can handle the unprecedented influx of claims, which has affected processing times. Several people we've talked to have had a shorter experience when filing during non-peak hours (late night, early morning). Those without internet access or who have case-specific questions can call 1-877-644-6562 (OHIO-JOB) from 7a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.

LIVE UNITED @ WORK
For many of us, this will be our first experience interacting with government agencies and social service organizations looking for help. If you work at AGC, CRSI, Global Precision Parts, Green Hills Community, Logan Acres, Logan County Board of DD, Mary Rutan Hospital, NEX Transport, RTC Services, or SpartanNash, you are eligible to confer one-on-one with Ashley Spence, United Way's Licensed Social Worker, to talk about ANY human service need. Simply call Ashley directly at (937) 935-9509 OR e-mail her to ask questions and seek guidance about any of these benefits and social services.
