Servant Leadership

““Take care of the people who take care of you,” is some of the best advice I’ve ever received. Servant leadership is a guiding principal at Thomas & Company and plays a major role in how the leadership team operates. It is truly rewarding to have the opportunity to express our appreciation for the impressive group of people that make our company great. We’re thankful for each and every team member here at Thomas & Company. ”

OKLAHOMA: IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

In an effort to avoid fraudulent cases, claimants in the state of Oklahoma are now
required to provide two forms of identification when filing a claim. One of these forms
must be a government issued photo ID. Accepted secondary documents include social
security cards, school IDs, birth certificates, and voter ID cards.
Filing electronically is still accepted, however it is important to note that the forms of IDs
must be provided IN PERSON after filing. Benefits will be denied if required documents
are not presented to your nearest Workforce office within seven days of filing. In the case
that the seventh day falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline is extended until the next
working day.

The same deadline window applies to non-residents, however their documents may be
faxed to 405-962-7524 or mailed to:

OESC
PO Box 52006
Oklahoma City, OK 73152.

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions on this matter.
