Some will lose unemployment benefits next month

COLUMBUS

Ohioans who have been unemployed for more than a year will face decreased benefits next month, thanks to dropping jobless rolls in the state.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services announced Wednesday that state and extended unemployment compensation will be capped at 63 weeks in September, down from 73 over the past few months and 99 weeks before April.

The move was triggered when the state’s unemployment rate dropped to 7.2 percent in July from a high of 10.6 percent in 2009.
