CLEVELAND Ohioans getting unemployment benefits will receive an extra payment because of a delayed raise.
The state is just now reprogramming its system that sends out unemployment checks and electronic fund transfers to reflect a $25 weekly increase approved earlier. Recipients were supposed to start getting that the last week in February.
As Ohio catches up, many of its more than 346,000 residents on unemployment in recent months will receive a benefits boost in the next week or two from the retroactive raise.
