An OESC claims processing event in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission will host a two-day claims processing event in Tulsa.

The unemployment agency will be at Expo Square in Tulsa on July 15th and 16th. OESC has previously held six days of similar events in the Oklahoma City area.

OESC says agents will be on hand to assist claimants with a wide range of issues, including fraudulent claims and federal pandemic assistance payments.

Individuals seeking assistance are encouraged to start lining up at 6:00 a.m. each day. OESC estimates it will be able to assist up to 400 people each day.

OESC has been plagued by technical problems and mass amounts of fraudulent claims, leading to protests at the Capitol and hundreds camping out near the agency's headquarters in an attempt to get assistance they say is impossible to receive via web or phone.
