Ohio Benefits Planned Maintenance

The Ohio Benefits 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, recertify, or renew your benefits for cash, food or Medicaid assistance during this time, you can submit a paper application to Fairfield County Job and Family Services (FCJFS) via fax to (740) 689-4848 or by using the drop box located in front of the building.

FCJFS 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 Fairfield 2-1-1 Information and Referral at (740) 687-0500. You can also receive referrals for other services by calling FCJFS at (740) 652-7889.
