Beginning October 25, 2020, claimants receiving traditional Unemployment Insurance, PEUC, and State Extended Benefits, will be required to register for work using Oklahoma Job Match (okjobmatch.com), or the work registration system in their resident state.
Claimants will also be required to complete two (2) work searches each week to receive unemployment benefits.
Individuals who meet one of the below criteria are exempt from having to register and search for work:

  • On a temporary layoff with a definite return to work date
  • Member of a certified labor or trade union
  • In an approved training program such as Trade Adjustment Assistance
  • Be a self-employed, contract, or gig worker receiving PUA
Also, all claimants filing new unemployment claims will be required to serve the one week waiting-period per Oklahoma law (ยง40-2-206). The first week individuals file a weekly claim during which all eligibility requirements are met will be considered
the waiting period and will have no payments issued.

The work registration, work search, and waiting-period requirements were initially waived due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Executive Orders issued by the Governor and OESC Executive Director that waived these requirements expires October 24, 2020.
