Ohio Unemployment | Everything You Need to Know

This website, https://unemployment.ohio.gov, is the only place where you can file for unemployment benefits with the state of Ohio, read/reply to your correspondence, and maintain your unemployment account.

You may encounter other websites for unemployment claim filing services and pop-up advertisements for prepaid debit cards, such as NetSpend or GreenDot. These websites and services are not associated with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) and are NOT required for you to receive unemployment benefits. The pop-up advertisements are related to your internet browser history. ODJFS will never ask you for your credit card number to use our services. To avoid identity theft, always use caution when providing personal or financial information.
