More Oklahomans Will Now Qualify for the $1,200 “Back to Work” Incentive!
The end is near...Next Saturday, June 26th (06-26-21) the additional Federal unemployment benefits will expire in the state of Oklahoma. If you're currently collecting unemployment after the 26th of this month you'll lose that extra $300 per week you've been receiving. Back in May Governor Kevin Stitt along with representatives from the OESC (Oklahoma Employment Security Commission) announced that they would be cancelling those extra weekly payments. Instead they'll offer a "Back to Work" cash incentive for Oklahomans who return to the workforce. They've just expended the program so that more people will qualify for the $1,200 bonus.
