Ohio unemployment benefit reimbursement due to fraud

Over the last several months, there have been concerns about fraudulent activity on or changes to unemployment benefits accounts in the state of Ohio.

Now, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has created a new process to help individuals to get their money back.

If this happened to you, you can request reimbursement, and that request will initiate the process in the unemployment system. Individuals who believe they were victims of an account takeover can call 1-877-644-6562 to request reimbursement.
