Ohio Unemployment Extension - EUC08 Tier 5

Currently, there is no Tier 5 EUC08.

If you use up all of your EUC08 unemployment benefits, there is another type of unemployment extension called Federal-State Extended Duration (FED-ED), more commonly referred to as Extended Benefits (EB). You will only qualify for the EB unemployment extension if you have used up all of your regular unemployment benefits and also used up all of your EUC08 unemployment extension.

If you qualify for the EB unemployment extension you will receive additional benefits equal to 20 weeks or 80% of the maximum benefit amount on the original unemployment claim, whichever amount is less.

An article on cleveland.com 1/26 stated that "About 20,000 Ohioans had been scheduled to lose benefits this month until the Legislature extended the 20-week addition on Tuesday."

The website and phone call still says last payable week for EB benefits is Jan 28th, tomorrow! I've only used 3 weeks of EB. Can anyone explain what this 20 week addition was for if not that? Here's link to article:
