As soon as you lose your job or your working hours are reduced, you may file a claim for unemployment insurance benefits. It is important to review all the requirements and make sure you have the documentation before filing a claim.
In order for you to be eligible for a valid claim, your work and wages during the base period must meet one of the following requirements:

The Unemployment Department of Oregon has multiple ways to audit the truthfulness of all unemployment claims that are filed. Make sure you report your working hours and your earnings correctly, and that all the information you provide while filing your claim is accurate. If you knowingly make a false statement or provide false information to get the benefits, you can be prosecuted and the punishment will be jail, a fine, or both. Additionally, you will have to return any money that was paid to you.
If you have information about a fraudulent claim or any unemployment fraud, please report it. Your information will be kept confidential and your help will be highly appreciated.
