The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission's is currently dealing with a system error and said that it may not be fixed until Tuesday.

According to the OESC, direct deposit claimants may get two payments at the same time, one for this week, and one for last week. OESC officials said they do not expect this to delay payments for this week.

All claims that go to cards should process as usual and all direct deposit payments for this week should be deposited as usual. That is why some people may get two payments at the same time.

This is just one of two problems the OESC faced over the weekend.

The first issue happened Sunday morning when some people were not able to file claims. However, the OESC said that has been resolved.

OESC officials still recommend that claimants fully close their internet browser and clear data to get the latest updates.

Currently, the OESC said this latest issue has to do with 'Conduent,' the company they have made a contract with to deliver unemployment benefits. The commission said they are in contact with them and are pushing them to release funds to claimants as quickly as possible.
