A processing problem has caused a one day delay in the payment of unemployment insurance benefits for about 105,000 Oregonians. Anyone who continued their claim on Sunday or Monday will experience this delay.
The problem that caused the delay has been fixed and the Employment Department anticipates all claims will be processed tonight.
The Department is asking all unemployment recipients to refrain from contacting the unemployment insurance center regarding the timing of their weekly payment. Excess phones calls will only create delays for those individuals needing assistance with their claim.
