    my benefits in Oklahoma are exhausted and my search log is pitiful as there was nothing in my field and experience to apply to. I have listed my searches and the few resumes I’ve sent and been rejected, will this satisfy them?

  2. A Long says:

    I was a workforce reduction in Oct. 2015 my unemployment benefits will run out in March of 2016. I have not found a job yet. I’m doing my work search as required and more if possible. What will be my next step if no job lines up before March.

      As far as I am aware, there is no extension in benefits available anywhere in the country.

    I have exhausted Tier 1 of my benefits as of this Saturday…Do I need to contact them, continue filing? I’m not sure this is unfamiliar to me. I read 2 tiers are available, will they send me paperwork? I am concerned because I have bills and I am living week to week as it is. Thanks

  7. Ell says:

    I have exhausted my unemployment benefits as of the week of Dec 6th, 2015. I received 26 weeks total unemployment benefits after being laid off from a 34 year long career. Is there currently an extension to unemployment benefits available in Oklahoma? And if so, is there a waiting period before one can file for the extended weeks? I am finding all kinds of mixed/contradicting info on line regarding this matter. The OK unemployment sites are awful and not up-to-date. In addition, I can not get a live person when I call the 800-555-1554 number. In addition, no one (no one soul) at the local unemployment office/workforce placement in Bartlesville knows whether there are extensions or not. It is ridiculous. Can someone please verify where or not an extension is available for Oklahoma, following the exhaustion of initial umemployment benefits?? Thank you so much,

  9. William Heffernan says:

    I received benefits that ended 2 years ago when I was able to find some contract work. In the past year I have not found any additional work. Can I resume benefits even if it has been over 2 years since I had benefits?

  10. Erica says:

    I started to receive extended benefits in the middle of December. Last payment was 12/28. I have continued to file weekly. Is there anything I should do to see if benefits will resume?

    • Adrian says:

  12. Debi says:

    My last week of regular unemployment is exhausted on Dec 21st(Sat) and turned in on Dec 22nd(Sun). The following week ending on Dec 28th would be filed on Dec 29th (Sun) thru EUC Tier 1. The actual week ends on Dec 28th but you file it the day after. Am I OK? – Thank you – Debi

  13. Jacqueline Ohman says:

    I have had my present job for 7 years, but because we have lost part of the government contract we worked under, my job is somewhat precarious. What is the average time to be re employed in a non professional environment for a 60 yr old female?

  15. kendle ortiz says:

    I have gotten one extension on my unemployment and wanted to know if I could get another extension or if that was all I could get. Thank you.

  16. Jada Moore says:

    I have a question, I collected unemployment last year, then I qualified for extended federal benefits. I only received 12 weeks of extended benefits. During my benefit year Tier 2 and Tier 3 were cut due to state unemployment dropping. One week before I was due to apply for tier 2 I was cut and even my last week was cut by half. I felt totally left out in the cold with hardly any warning and still no job. Since I am still Unemployed If tier 2 and 3 became available would I be eligible to qualify since Unemployment extension was extended to Dec. 2013? Any insight on this would be appreciated
    Thanks, Jada Moore

    • Baggie says:

      Hi Jada,

      It is unfortunate that you had to suffer. The EUC tiers are dependent on the unemployment rate of the state. You can check if you can resume collecting your EUC benefits, this could be possible. As of April 2013, the unemployment rate of Oklahoma is 4.9%. This means only tier 1 is available as of now which is up to 14 weeks.
