Just When WIll Ohio's Unemployed Start Collecting the Extra $25/week in Unemployment Benefits?

According to the state of Ohio is getting close to retroactively paying the extra $25/week to the jobless collecting unemployment insurance.

The extra money was supposed to be delivered in February, but computer glitches delayed the payments until now. If you're a buckeye looking for the extra cash, you can expect in the next couple of weeks.

There will be a separate "catch-up" payment and then the extra funds should start showing up in future checks.

The distribution of those benefits have begun in various parts of the country already. I'm sure Ohio will get their share soon enough.

You're correct---The $25 checks for Ohio are coming out this week---and include a make-up payment for the 10 weeks that were missed.
