If you were supposed to provide interim report information in April or May, your due dates will be extended to after May and you will receive notification on the new timing for your interim report.

Although some of these renewal timelines have been pushed back, customers are still required to report household changes. Failure to report could result in an overpayment that would have to be repaid. Examples of things that must be reported include:

• Addition of newborns, other household members

• Job loss

• Decreased or increased wages

Paycheck Protection Program

An SBA loan that helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.


Content


Apply for the Paycheck Protection Program

FIND A LENDER

Loan Information

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.

SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.

You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program. You should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program.

Lenders may begin processing loan applications as soon as April 3, 2020. The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.

Frequently Asked Questions for Lenders and Borrowers

Who Can Apply

The following entities affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19) may be eligible:

Loan Details and Forgiveness

The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees.

Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels.  Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.

This loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of 1%.

If you wish to begin preparing your application, you can download a copy of the PPP borrower application form to see the information that will be requested from you when you apply with a lender.

Other Assistance

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are currently eligible to apply for disaster assistance.

Coronavirus and Unemployment Insurance: Employer Information

NOTICE TO EMPLOYERS: Due to COVID-19, please email ALL WARNs and inquiries to rapdresp@jfs.ohio.gov until further notice.
    
Please distribute this form to employees laid off because of the COVID-19 pandemic to expedite their claim process: http://www.odjfs.state.oh.us/forms/num/JFS00671/pdf/.  

Questions and Answers

Question 1:Will workers qualify for unemployment benefits if the coronavirus (COVID-19) causes an employer to shut down operations?

Answer: Updated: An executive order issued by Governor DeWine expands flexibility for Ohioans to receive unemployment benefits during Ohio's emergency declaration period. Unemployment benefits will be available for eligible individuals who are requested by a medical professional, local health authority, or employer to be isolated or quarantined as a consequence of COVID-19, even if they are not actually diagnosed with COVID-19. In addition, the waiting period for eligible Ohioans to receive unemployment benefits will be waived.

Question 2:If an employer lays off employees due to the loss of production caused by the coronavirus, will the employees be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits?

Answer: Yes, if the employees are otherwise eligible. An executive order issued by Governor DeWine expands flexibility for Ohioans to receive unemployment benefits during Ohio's emergency declaration period.

Question 3:If an employee receives unemployment benefits as a result of a coronavirus-related business shutdown, will the employer's unemployment taxes increase?

Answer: For contributory employers, charges during Ohio's emergency declaration period will be mutualized. Reimbursing employers will follow existing charging requirements under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 4141.

Question 4:If an employee receives unemployment benefits as a result of a coronavirus-related business shutdown, can the benefits be charged to the mutual account?

Answer: Updated: Yes, an executive order issued by Governor DeWine allows unemployment benefit charges to be mutualized for contributory employers.

Question 5:If an employer submits quarterly reports and/or payments late because of the pandemic, will the filing deadline be extended?

Answer: Updated: The filing deadline is not being extended. However, an executive order issued by Governor DeWine waives penalties for late reporting and payments during Ohio's emergency declaration period. More guidance on this is forthcoming.

Question 6:Would it be possible for me to pay my former employees a supplemental benefit payment?

Answer: 

Yes, you can apply for a Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (SUB) plan. Here are the requirements:

Please submit completed plans to UCTech@jfs.ohio.gov with “SUB PLAN” in the subject line.

Question 7:Is Disaster Unemployment Assistance available in Ohio?

Answer: At this time, no, but please continue to check back for updates. Additional information and support for Ohioans can be found at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/.

Question 8:It looks like I have a new correspondence in my account. Why can’t I open it?

Answer: These notifications may appear before the system actually finishes generating the correspondence. You will be able to open it in your online account after you receive the email notification that you have a new correspondence.

Shared Work Ohio

SharedWork Ohio is a voluntary layoff aversion program. It allows workers to remain employed and employers to retain trained staff during times of reduced business activity. Under a SharedWork Ohio plan, the participating employer reduces affected employees' hours in a uniform manner. The participating employee works the reduced hours each week, and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) provides eligible individuals an unemployment insurance benefit proportionate to their reduced hours. For the duration of the pandemic, ODJFS is committed to reviewing and responding to all SharedWork Ohio applications within one week of receipt. Learn more.

Mass Layoff information

All Ohio employers planning a mass layoff or shutdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic should provide the following mass-layoff number - 2000180 - and linked instruction sheet to their employees to speed the processing of unemployment benefits.

COVID-19-affected claimants with otherwise valid applications for unemployment will be awarded benefits. While claimants must still meet the weekly requirements that they be able and available for work, the requirement that they actively search for work while receiving benefits has been waived.

COVID-19-affected contributory employers will receive regular monthly charge statements, but these charges will be charged to the mutual account and not the employer's account.

Reimbursing employers will follow existing charging requirements under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 4141.

For more information, please see the Press Release and Mass Layoff Instructional Sheet.

VOTING

No matter where we live, how much we earn, or what we look like, Ohioans are joining together to keep each other safe and healthy during this COVID-19 crisis.

With the last minute changes to Ohio's primary election due to COVID-19, we need your help letting voters know they can still safely cast a ballot from home through voting by mail. There are over 7 million Ohioans who haven’t cast a ballot in the 2020 Primary Election who need to hear from us.

You can volunteer from home by contacting Ohio voters through an App called Outvote in two phases: First encouraging voters to request a ballot, and then to remind voters to turn it in.

The tool is super easy to use from your computer or smart phone and allows you to text a ton of voters very quickly using an anonymous number.

To join us in this campaign, please do the following:

1. Download the Outvote App:

2. Sign up for one of the trainings: to learn how to use Outvote for this campaign.
