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
The same deadline window applies to non-residents, however their documents may be
faxed to 405-962-7524 or mailed to:
PO Box 52006
Oklahoma City, OK 73152.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions on this matter.
