Ohio Unemployment Weekly Claims

In order to continue obtaining an unemployment check every week you must file a weekly claim, also known as a weekly certification or continued claim.

  • The reason of filing a weekly claim is to tell the unemployment agency that you:
  • Are at present looking for work.
  • Have not done any work this week.
  • Have not made any money this week (unless you are allowed to by the terms of your unemployment.)
  • Have not found another job.
  • Want to obtain an unemployment check or payment this week.

Therefore, it is very important to file your weekly claim every week to keep receiving your unemployment check.

If you delay in filing your weekly claim, you may not get your unemployment check on time.

      After you file your initial claim for benefits, you must continue to file ongoing claims for benefits. For each week claimed, you must answer several questions. Your answers will determine whether you are eligible for benefit payment for that week. Answer all questions honestly. Ohio law imposes penalties, including fines and/or imprisonment, for fraud. If you do not file a “timely” claim for benefits, you will not be paid for that week.
      There are two ways to file a weekly claim:
      File online at To access your claim online, you will enter your user name (Social Security number) and Personal Identification Number (PIN). The weekly claim application will include space to enter your weekly job contact information. This is the fastest method of filing your weekly claims.
      File by calling 1-877-OHIO-JOB (1-877-644-6562) from a touch-tone telephone. To access your claim through the telephone system, you will need your Social Security number and your PIN. You will need to speak your weekly job contact information, which will be recorded by the phone system. It is important that you speak clearly. If using a cell phone, this call may use minutes on your phone.
      If you do not have access to either a touch-tone phone or the Internet, please contact your processing center.
