Unemployment Overpaid

The Department of Job and Family Services says about 48,000 Ohioans paid unemployment compensation during the “stay at home” portion of the pandemic were paid too much money.

That’s about 6-percent of recipients.

They have been notified, according to the department, and can appeal or expect to be docked that amount in future payments.
