unemployed_personQ) I applied for unemployment and was denied because they said I didn’t make enough money in the period of which they picked up a couple days I worked at school in ky.I have worked in Ohio for the last 2 years this was the job. I was laid off from is this who I should draw my unemployment from?

A) When you apply for unemployment benefits, you will need to provide information about your employment history. This includes the name of your employer, the dates you worked, and your earnings.

The unemployment office will use this information to determine whether you are eligible for benefits and how much you will receive.

In your case, you were denied benefits because you did not make enough money in the period of time they reviewed. This is because they included the couple of days you worked in Kentucky.

You should appeal the decision and provide the unemployment office with documentation of your employment in Ohio. This will show that you have made enough money to be eligible for benefits.

You should also contact the unemployment office in Ohio and file a claim there. You may be eligible for benefits from Ohio, even though you worked in Kentucky.

Here are some additional tips for appealing a denial of unemployment benefits:

  • Be sure to file your appeal within the deadline specified by the unemployment office.
  • Be sure to provide accurate and complete information in your appeal.
  • Be sure to keep track of your appeal and follow up with the unemployment office as needed.
  • Be sure to contact an attorney if you need help with your appeal.

You should apply for unemployment insurance benefits in Ohio based on the 2 years you had on the job before being laid off.

General requirement for unemployment insurance benefits: 

  • Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
  • Be totally or partially unemployed.
  • Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
  • Be physically able to work.
  • Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
  • Be actively looking for work.
  • Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
  • Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
