Unemployment benefit claim filing during COVID-19 pandemic

Beverly Bryant - March 17, 2020 3:39 pm

In order to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission is encouraging claimants to use the internet to file Unemployment Insurance claims.

Information about Oklahoma’s Unemployment Insurance system can be found on the agency website at https://www.ok.gov/oesc/. In addition to online claim filing, the website contains other information, such as frequently asked questions, contact information, forms, guides, the governing statutes and rules, and other helpful data.

If you have problems filing your claim online, you may call the OESC Service Center at the following numbers:
Inside OKC metropolitan area: (405) 525-1500
Outside OKC metropolitan area: (800) 555-1554

OESC employees in the State Office, the Service Centers, and Oklahoma Works/America’s Job Centers will be reporting to work at their normal duty stations for the time being. The OESC will be attempting to have as many employees as possible work from home.

The community Oklahoma Works/America’s Job Centers will be closed to the public, but OESC personnel will be at the office to answer telephone calls. If you have an appointment or need assistance at your community office, please call in. The main number for each office is listed below.
