Former Unemployment Benefit Requirements Being Reinstated in Oregon

The Oregon Employment Department is phasing requirements back in that were relaxed during the pandemic for anyone collecting unemployment benefits.  Department Director David Gerstenfeld says that includes being registered with the iMatch Skills program. Anyone who isn’t registered will lose their benefits.  Anyone collecting will also have to start showing proof they're looking for work.  By September 5th, all of the requirements to receive unemployment benefits in Oregon that were in effect before the pandemic will be back in place.
