Fiscal Software Migration Status

Changes to Fiscal Migration Schedule

Next week, the MCOECN & SSDT will be sending out an email to those districts that remain on Classic State Software, excluding those in the most current Wave (7) or currently implementing eFinancePLUS (eFP). As you know, the deadline to migrate to Redesign or eFP is 12/31/2022, which means that all districts must be fully functional on another fiscal solution prior to that date.  In an effort to prepare for unexpected delays in any district conversions, SSDT has designated Wave 10 (July 2022 – December 2022) as an “Emergency Wave” only.

In light of this change, NEOnet will be moving any district currently in Wave 10, to an earlier wave. Davis Karousis will be reaching out to those affected districts to reschedule their migrations. If you have a question about which Wave your district is assigned, please contact Davis at dkarousis[at]neonet[dot]org.

Unemployment Fraud

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) has created a new online portal that provides a direct way for employers to notify the agency if they believe their employees’ personal information was compromised and used to file fraudulent unemployment claims. 

Employers can visit and click on the “Report Identity Theft” button. They will then be directed to both the portal and additional resources. The portal includes a template that employers can download, complete and then upload to provide the names of multiple employees whose personal information may have been compromised. 

According to ODJFS, Identity theft is a widespread national challenge. Many Ohioans have become victims, and their identities used to file fraudulent unemployment claims in both the traditional unemployment and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance programs. Last month, ODJFS issued 1.7 million 1099-G tax forms to individuals whose names unemployment benefits were paid in 2020. Many of those individuals were never paid unemployment benefits and did not know their identity had been compromised until they received a 1099-G form.
