OESC Opens New OKC Field Office
New Facility Will Replace Eastside Location; Will Serve More Claimants and Job Seekers
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC) is opening a new Oklahoma City field office just two miles north of the State Capitol to better serve individuals in the Oklahoma City area. Located at 5005 N. Lincoln Blvd., the larger Oklahoma City American Job Center will replace the Eastside American Job Center starting Monday, Aug. 17.
“We’re shifting staff and resources to this one centrally-located facility to provide more access in the Oklahoma City area,” said OESC Interim Executive Director Shelley Zumwalt. “The larger space allows us to serve more Oklahomans, as well as continue to provide space for social distancing measures.”
The Eastside facility, located at 7401 N.E. 23rd St., will remain open through Friday, Aug. 14. Claimants needing assistance can come in person to the facility or talk with a representative over the phone at (405) 426-8850. The new Oklahoma City American Job Center will utilize staff and resources from the Eastside location as well as the previously closed Brookwood location.
Those seeking employment or unemployment assistance can visit any of OESC’s 27 field offices across Oklahoma for walk-ins, in-person and telephone appointments. A full list of offices and their contact information can be found here: https://oesc.ok.gov/oesc-office-location-finder.
