I failed to add my wife as a dependent. Why do I have to wait until after 12/10/2012 to add her as dependent. Someone should have asked about dependents when I filed!! I hope I do not have to file again but if I do, I WILL KNOW.

I rec'd by mailed yesterday 2/22/11 something I should have responded to by 2/18/11. I was not able to respond on time since this date had already passed. It was a request from my employer to appeal me receiving benefits & was untrue. Since my employer has now made an attack on my character I am waiting for a call from my lawyers. I called the redetermination unit. The person I talked to said I should go ahead & either write or fax my response & explain I had just rec'd this notice by mail. I will write my response & will fax it from my library today or tomorrow morning.

After I faxed my response to my employer's appeal to retract my benefits I realized that I did not include an identifying number. In going back to include this I revised my response sue errors & some clarifications. My initial determination is #.

i enrolled in school part-time in January. Just a couple college courses that might help my marketability in the job market. My regular benefits just ran out last week. I applied for extended unemployment the other day and it appears I may have an "eligibility issue"? What could this be? Will I have to drop my classes to be eligible? It would be a shame because I am done in 4 weeks.

I'm confused as to what my PIN is. It's not that I forgot it. I just don't believe I've gotten it. I wrote down all of the numbers the phone representative gave me, but none of them are 8 digits. The letter I've gotten through email doesn't have it either. Can anyone help me out?

On 1/7/11 and email was sent out company wide stating our company would be moving out of the area "summer of 2011"

On 3/10/11 another email was sent out about the new locations they were looking at. Our Managers/Supervisors all advised us that the move wouldn't take place until 8/2010.

Today is 5/26 and my Manager has announced to our team that our entire company is moving to another city on 6/13. This "new" location is approx. 42 miles from our current location, and well over 60-67 miles from my home. I can't afford to drive that far for the per hour wage I currently get. I have applied for another position within my company that pays more, but was turned down.

Will I be eligable for Ohio Unemployment benefits.

Is there a deadline to file for unemployment? My circumstances were unique due to fmla and h.r. issues, then relocation, therefore i will call to see if i am eligible. However it has been approximately over 6 months ago. Is it too late to apply? (as I am seeking employment in the meantime).

Hello, my husband has currently been with the military for almost 3 years. They are chaptering him out with an honorable discharge, because unfortunately he failed one drug test. After the failed test, he completed ASAP-Army suvstance abuse program. We are going to have to move back to Ohio, from Washington, and we have no idea what to do. Will he qualify for unemployment??

As long as he recieves an "honorable discharge", he will be accepted for Ohio unemployment.

A company hired me on with no prior notice of logistics and gave me three weeks training for a supervisor position. They never gave me a handbook for policies and rules. They informed me I was suspended but not why. They then terminated me without any prior disciplinary action or even addressing anything was wrong with me. They informed the unemployment office that I violated Company policies, but didn't tell me that I did that. They didn't even give me a chance to explain or even more training. Can I still get unemployment?

My husband was transferred to the Cleveland area from the Toledo area. We continue to be Michigan residents at this time b/c we have been living in campgrounds with no permanent Ohio address. I had resigned my Michigan job when he learned he was being transferred and worked in Toledo, OH for 5 months, then began a job in the Cleveland area for 3 months. I have just been laid off from my current company. Am I eligible to collect Ohio unemployment?

I was laid off from a full time job in healthcare, and currently I am receiving unemployment. Now the company is calling (6 weeks later), wanting to rehire me for a prn (as needed) position. Do I have to accept this position? How would this affect my unemployment? I am not interested in going back for this position.

I was on employment but excepted a position for employment. The employer miss lead me in regards to my job description. I was told that my work schedule would be on more than 55 hours a week, I am working around 70 hours a week. They also told me I would be working in Akron, Canton, but no farther than Cleveland. This is not the case. I travel sometimes 2 hours from these locations. If I resign am eligible to collect unemployment again?yep
