By law, the first payable (or allowable) week of the claim is considered to be a waiting period. Although you must still file your weekly claim (either by phone or internet), you will not be paid for the waiting period week.
No benefits will be paid if there are insufficient wages to establish monetary eligibility, if there is an issue being investigated, or if you do not file your weekly claim. Once benefits have been approved and the waiting period week is served, payments are made within 2-3 days of the weekly claim being filed.
Weekly claims are filed after the week ends but must be filed within fourteen days of the week ending date. All weeks run Sunday through Saturday.
Can I work part-time and still receive unemployment benefits in Oklahoma?
Yes. However, you must report the amount of money you earned, before any deductions were made, for each week, whether or not you were paid during the week. Earnings must be reported during the week you earn them, not when you actually receive the payment.
Work is anything you do for wages, including self-employment, during the seven days of the week you are claiming Unemployment Insurance benefits.
You can register to vote if you are a citizen of the United States, a resident of the State of Oklahoma, and at least 18 years old or meet the age requirement to pre-register.
Pre-registration - Persons who are at least 17½ years old may pre-register to vote in Oklahoma if they meet all eligibility requirements. Applicants who preregister cannot vote until they turn 18 years old and the application has been approved by the applicant's County Election Board. Applicants will be mailed a voter ID card upon approval of their registration. Applications received less than 25 days before an election, in which the applicant has turned 18 and is eligible to vote, will be held and processed immediately following the election.
Persons Convicted of a Felony – A person convicted of a felony may register to vote when he or she has fully served his or her sentence of court-mandated calendar days, including any term of incarceration, parole or supervision, or completed a period of probation ordered by any court. A convicted felon who has been pardoned may register.
Persons Judged Incapacitated - Persons judged incapacitated by a court may not register to vote.
What is the deadline to register to vote in Oklahoma?
You may submit your voter registration application at any time. However, the voter registration deadline is 25 days prior to the date of an election. You can find the dates of voter registration deadline here.
Mailed applications that are postmarked 24 or fewer days prior to the date of the election, or hand-delivered applications that are received by election officials or voter registration agencies 24 or fewer days prior to the date of the election, or electronic updates to a voter registration that are submitted 24 or fewer days prior to the date of the election, will be processed after that election.
If you pre-register to vote, you will be mailed a voter identification card once you turn eighteen and your registration has been approved and activated by the county election board.
Where can I find the official number of cases/testings for COVID-19 in Oklahoma?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
