Ohio Benefits April Shutdown

Ohio Benefits April Shutdown
The Ohio Benefit s system will be unavailable from 3 p.m. on
Thursday, April 22, through 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 27, so that a
major technical upgrade can be completed. If you need to
apply, recertif y or renew your benefits for cash, food or Medicaid
assistance during this time, you can submit a paper application to
your County Department of Job and Family Services. County staff
will not have access to data about your case while the system is
offline. If you submit a paper application, it will be screened to see
whether you need expedited food assistance, but it will not be
processed until after the system is back online. If you need food
while the system is unavailable, please contact your local food
pantry. Your local county agency also can provide referrals to other
servi ces if you need them. You can find your local county agency
at HTTPS:/ County Directory ohio.gov). We apologize for this
inconvenience.
