COVID-19 & the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission’s Town Hall

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC) received more than 135,000 initial claims for unemployment benefits as a result of COVID-19. Therefore, the OESC will conduct a virtual town hall for the public. This town hall will provide information about the claims process and help answer frequently asked questions.

The town hall will begin at 1:00 pm on Friday, April 10, 2020. The OESC created an Eventbrite page for anyone who would want to register and attend the town hall. The Eventbrite page can be found at: Registration is free and only a name and email address will be needed to register. Anyone who would like to participate in the virtual town hall may do so here: The OESC will call approximately 30,000 claimants and invite them to connect as well.

Our office will monitor COVID-19 updates closely and will send out additional announcements as we become aware of any updates. You can also review these updates on our website at too.

Please reach out to your representative with any questions.
