Our team is aware that some claimants are continuing to experience delays on direct deposits and we are in direct contact with Conduent about this issue. We've also received reports that claimants have been told OESC stopped all direct deposits throughout the state and want to clarify that this is incorrect. OESC has not taken any action to stop or delay direct deposits or ACH transfers. The current delay is a result of actions administered by Conduent and we are in close conversations with their team as they work to resolve this issue.

Priority of Service

The U.S. Department of Labor provides grant funds to the State of Oklahoma to provide employment and training services to eligible residents and workers. As a condition to receiving those funds, priority of service will be given to qualified veterans when referring individuals to job openings, DOL funded training programs or related services. In accordance with the implementation of the Veterans' Priority Provisions of the "Jobs for Veterans Act" (PL 107-288), qualified veterans will receive priority referral to services over non-veterans as determined by each program's mandatory eligibility criteria.

Information and assistance will be provided by One-Stop and Workforce Center staff regarding available employment programs, training opportunities and services, eligibility requirements, and veteran's priority. Veterans are encouraged to avail themselves of these opportunities.

For more information on program eligibility and Veteran Priority details visit or contact your local One-Stop or Workforce office. Veteran Employment and Training staff or One-Stop staff are available to explain program mandatory eligibility and veterans' priority.
