Ohio unemployment appealing denial because of severance

I saw an answer on MEL (I-was-denied-unemployment-because-of-my-lump-sem-severance-package) Is there anyway to appeal the denial of benefits because of a lump sum severance. Ohio unemployment has determined that my severance was received for a period of 38 weeks even though it was a lump sum payment. My severance agreement does not state any dates or weeks for payment, only a date of my last day of employment. Could I appeal to say that it was allocated for that specific date?

Thank you in advance!!!

I believe that you can appeal this issue. Follow the instructions on the Notice of Determination. If you have any questions, though, consult an experienced employment lawyer. If you do not file an appeal timely, which is usually within 21 days, you will lose your right to appeal.
