TULSA, Okla. -

Hundreds of people will be back at Expo Square Thursday morning to get help with unemployment and fraud issues.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission is hosting the event. All tickets for both days were given out just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The OESC said they expect to help around 450 people.

The commission is already planning more events because a lot of people said they showed up, got in line when they were told to, but still didn’t get a ticket.

"We hit some bumps in the road on the first day for sure, but anytime you invite 500 of your close friends to your front door, there’s lessons to be learned," Shelley Zumwalt said, the interim director of OESC.

The two additional help events are scheduled for next Wednesday and Thursday.
