    Oregon unemployment claims system will go dark for several days ahead of big upgrade – By Mike Rogoway (The Oregonian/OregonLive) / Feb 24, 2024

    Oregon will stop taking new jobless benefits claims for several days beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday, ahead of the state’s long-awaited switch to a more advanced computer system.

    At the same time Tuesday, the Oregon Employment Department will shut down other services, including online assistance. Weekly claims filings will shut down at 5 p.m. Wednesday. So will claims and questions for Paid Leave Oregon, the state’s new family-leave program administered by the employment department.

    The agency plans to resume full service at 8 a.m. on March 4 when the new, $106 million computer system goes online.

    People who haven’t filed new or continuing claims by the Tuesday and Wednesday cutoffs may have to wait an extra week to receive assistance, though the employment department will pay their full benefits after the new computers take over.
