Whether you file online or by phone, the Oregon Employment Department (ED)staff need to process the application. This can take a few days when workload is heavy. Once your application is processed, theY will mail you a Wage and Potential Benefit Report.
On the first Sunday or Monday after you filed your application, file a claim for the prior week. You can file your claim for the prior week online or by phone on our Weekly Claim Line. You need to file a weekly claim for each week you are unemployed and wish to receive benefits, including your first or “waiting week.“
If there are any issues on your claim to investigate, be sure to respond to all letters or phone messages right away. Continue to make your weekly claims while the investigation is taking place. If you don’t make a weekly claim, we can’t begin the investigation. It can take three to four weeks to complete the investigation.
You may be scheduled to attend a meeting at a WorkSource Oregon center. If you do not go, your benefits will be delayed while your case is being investigated. Depending on the reason you didn’t go, your benefits could be denied.

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.
