Oregon Unemployment Benefits Information

Claiming Benefits for Unemployment in Oregon 

Approximately 10 days after the applicant’s employment benefits claim, he or she will receive the Wage and Potential Benefit Report. This Oregon unemployment claim report will include the wages reported by the “base year” and the “weekly benefit amount” an applicant may receive if he or she is eligible.

The unemployment insurance coverage petitioner needs to carefully review the wages and employers listed on the Wage and Potential Benefit Report. If the wages are missing or incorrect, he or she needs to follow the instructions on the form and contact the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Center immediately. If the benefit amount is based on wages an applicant did not earn, he or she will be responsible for repaying any money paid to them in excess.
