Oklahoma's Employment Security Commission says jobless Oklahomans on both of its pandemic assistance programs will not receive help after December 26th.

It's a decision OESC Director Shelley Zumwalt says wasn't theirs to make.

"The decision to extend those programs or offer another benefit is not a state or OESC decision, it is a federal decision," said Zumwalt

The OESC says if you've already exhausted your pandemic assistance you can still sign up for the State's 13-week Extended Benefits program. For More Info Click Here
