Oklahoma Employment Security Commission Director Shelley Zumwalt announced on Friday that the end date for the State Extended Benefits program has been set for the week of December 12.

In a video posted to Twitter, Zumwalt said she had just received the information from the Department of Labor that the program no longer meets the requirements to stay in effect.

“The DOL has determined that Oklahoma, along with a number of other states, no longer meets the threshold for the program to remain active and notified us of this change this afternoon,” OESC said on Twitter.

After December 12, no SEB program payments will be distributed. The first day claimants can file for the following week of benefits is Sunday, December 13.
