The latest update from www.unemployment.ohio.gov site is “On Thursday, June 24, legislation that would have extended eligibility deadlines for extended unemployment compensation benefits did not pass in the Senate. It is now unclear if claimants who harass their regular unemployment compensation will, at some point in the future, be eligible for extended benefits. Without the federal extension, claimants who harass their current tier of Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) will not be eligible for the next tier. Additionally, the federally funded State Extended Benefits (Ohio EB) and the $25 supplement of Federal Additional Compensation (FAC) may not be reinstated.”
