If you lost your job at no fault of your own, then it is important to file your claim right away. When your job has ended or your employer has cut back work hours, apply immediately for unemployment insurance benefits. The start date or effective date of an unemployment insurance claim is not based on when the job ended or when the employer cut back hours. Claims start on the Sunday of the week an unemployment insurance application is submitted. At the time of filing you will need information including your Social Security Number. Name (including prior names [e.g.. married or maiden names), mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address (if applicable). Alien registration number and expiration date, if a non US citizen. DD Form 214 if you served in the military in the last 18 months. Form SF 8 or SF 50 if you were employed by the Federal government in the last 18 months and more. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits and what additional information is needed when applying, find out how to file your Oklahoma unemployment claim. As a reminder, unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. You must report any unemployment benefits you receive as part of your gross income on your taxes.
