Welcome To Oklahoma’s Self-Service Website
Our goal at the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission is to assist you with the transition to your next employment opportunity.
Unemployment Insurance pays benefits to workers who have lost their job through no fault of their own. Anyone who is separated from a job may file a claim for unemployment benefits. You can file if you quit, were discharged, got laid off or are even out on strike.
You may be eligible for UI benefits if you meet all eligibility requirements. If you qualify, you may receive weekly payments to help cover your living expenses while you search for new employment. To collect benefits, you must be able, available, and actively looking for work during each week in which you are claiming benefits. You must continue to file a weekly claim to continue to receive benefits and meet eligibility requirements in order for the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission to pay you benefits.
Unemployment benefits are made available through taxes paid by your former employer (s) to partially replace your regular earnings and help you meet expenses while you look for another job.
Individuals filing for unemployment benefits are required to register for reemployment services and complete a resume within seven days of initially filing their claim. This must be done online at OKJobMatch.com. This interactive job search tool is designed to help you connect with employers and their job openings. If you live outside of Oklahoma, you must register for work with the employment service in your resident state and provide proof of registration within seven days of filing your claim.
