3.  Federal Student Loan Repayments can be deferred


Federal Student Loan payments can be deferred for up to two months, zero % interest.  You must apply, it is not automatic (per USDE).   If you need to utilize this option, I encourage you strongly to READ THE FINE PRINT and GET IT IN WRITING.  If you are a PSLF program participant, do not agree to anything that may disqualify you from the program.

"Some borrowers may want to continue making payments, like those seeking Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)..."

5. Electronic Notary

 
If you wish to update your legal documents such as a living will or medical power of attorney but do not wish to do it in person due to safety concerns, you may do so in the state of Oklahoma now because of legislation passed last session, effective January 1, 2020. There are many online resources for this.

6.  Unemployed as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak?   
 

 
There could be help for you.   The Governor has waived the 1 week wait for filing.   On Saturday, the House passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act after negotiations with the White House. The bill, supported by President Trump and headed to the Senate, aims to provide money to most American workers stuck at home due to the Coronavirus.

Paying more than you should for hard to come by items?

Today, the Attorney General activated the Emergency Price Stabilization Act which prohibits an increase of more than 10% on goods in an emergency.

9.  Unemployment Fraud

 

 

Many Oklahomans are finding themselves victims of Unemployment Fraud. Have fraudulent unemployment claims been made in your name?

Oklahomans can stop false claims made in their names by contacting the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission OESC at (405) 962-4602

or by emailing

fraud@oesc.state.ok.us (faster results than a phone call!)

For more information on false claims and other resources related to unemployment for individuals and business owners, visit https://oesc.ok.gov/.

 

The Oklahoma Attorney General has also set up a page allowing individuals or businesses that receive bogus claims to fill out a form reporting the claim. The claim will then be directed to law enforcement to be addressed.

The form can be accessed here: https://bit.ly/35lium2.

Then, save and submit to:

unemploymentcomplaint@oag.ok.gov.
