Oklahoma Unemployment Application Information

Oklahoma Unemployment Insurance (UI) program helps unemployed workers with monetary benefits, a partial wage replacement, in order to ease the economic burden of unemployment. These benefits are available for such unemployed workers who have lost their job through no fault of their own and meet other requirements for the program. The amount of benefits is determined in accordance to wages received during the base period.

If you are eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits, you can file a claim online or through telephone. Since benefits are not available retroactive beyond the time you filed a claim, claimants are encouraged to file their claims as soon as they are without work.
