Overview Of Oklahoma Unemployment Law

Unemployment insurance is a strategy of social insurance meant to lower the economic burden of unemployment by providing a temporary source of income for individuals who are unemployed through no fault of their own. Without income, an individual may be unable to support a family or provide for children. If you owe child support or share custody of a minor child, loss of income can have implications for your childs future.

If you've recently lost your job in Oklahoma, you may be eligible for Oklahoma Unemployment Insurance benefits. This is a guide to filing your claim for Oklahoma unemployment benefits. Trying to fully understand your unemployment benefits can be a full time job in itself and since each situation may have its own unique circumstances, if you are involved in a divorce, have child support obligations, owe alimony in Oklahoma or have other family law concerns, make sure you check with a Tulsa divorce attorney (tulsadivorceattorney.pro) for any guidance you may require.

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must have worked in Oklahoma during the past 12 to 18 months and have earned at least a minimum amount of wages as determined by our guidelines.
