Reemployment Service & Eligibility Assessment Program

Reemployment Service & Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) Program Overview and Requirements

The Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) program provides reemployment assistance to Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants who may not be able to return to their previous occupation or industry and, as a result, may run out of unemployment benefits. Selected participants will have the opportunity to speak with a RESEA specialist to assist participants with returning to work as quickly as possible.

Individuals who are selected for this program will be notified by mail, and must attend all appointments to receive unemployment benefits. Appointments are in-person, but accommodations are available.

Prior to attending the first appointment, selected individuals must:

  • Go to, create an account and complete or upload a resume. 
  • Watch the RESEA Orientation video below.

If participants are unable to attend the scheduled appointment, they must contact the Oklahoma Works (OESC) office listed on their notice of eligibility letter prior to the appointment date to reschedule. A valid reason or good cause must be provided to reschedule.
