Oklahoma City -

Tuesday was the last scheduled event in the Oklahoma City metro for the State Employment Security Commission to help people with their unemployment claims in person.

The event was already at full capacity.

After Tuesday there are still options for people who've missed the claims events.

For people in the metro, starting Wednesday the OKC area offices will be reopening, and people with claims problems are encouraged to go to them. The OESC says both the OKC Eastside and Shawnee offices will be open to serve people in need. The commission is encouraging people to reach out to those offices to learn more about appointment availability.

The commission will no longer be processing claims at the Will Rogers building near the state capitol.

These large in person claims events will be moving over to the Tulsa Fairgrounds Wednesday and Thursday, with a capacity to serve 400 people each day.

The OESC says over the past few weeks, they helped more than 3000 people in the lines at the Reed Center.

The commission added four extra days to the event due to the large amount of people in need.
