This is an exciting new development at Tulsa Remote, and we need your help! A bill that recently passed through the State of Oklahoma incentivizes businesses across the state to attract quality remote jobs. Though this applies to any business across the state, it will help Tulsa Remote grow by subsidizing some of the money we pay members to move here.
In order for us to qualify, we’ll need some information from you. Specifically, we’ll need consistent proof of your income (once per year during tax season), and documents regarding health insurance provided by your employer.
The most important thing to the state is that your employer is paying the state of Oklahoma, so please ensure your employer knows you live in Oklahoma (via address change)!
Don’t worry, if you don’t have health insurance. You are not deemed ineligible for Tulsa Remote. We just can’t get reimbursed by the state for you. Please complete the form either way, and we’ll follow up with you with the next steps if needed.
We appreciate your attention to our outreach from time to time in regards to this reimbursement program. This will allow our organization to thrive and spend as many resources as possible supporting you while you are here.

Am I still eligible for Tulsa Remote if I don’t fulfill the requirements of the ORQJIA?
Yes, your eligibility for the Tulsa Remote program is not affected by the requirements of the ORQJIA, so long as you continue to meet the terms and conditions of the TR program. We only ask that you respond to our inquiry so a proper determination of eligibility for ORQJIA can be made.
Do I need to tell my employer I’m moving to Oklahoma?
Yes, employers are required to maintain up-to-date proof of residence for tax reporting purposes.
What if I do not select all six of the qualifying health coverages offered to me?
As long as your employer offers these coverage areas as part of your benefits package, we are still eligible. You do not need to elect all of the coverage benefits offered.
What if I am on my spouse’s insurance?
As long as your employer offers you health insurance with the qualifying benefits coverage, we are still eligible for ORQJIA, even if you do not elect the coverage. Tulsa Remote will still need a copy of your benefits statement showing the health benefits offered by your employer.
What if I move out of Oklahoma during my year with Tulsa Remote?
If you move out of Oklahoma, you will need to notify Tulsa Remote by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You would be exited from the program and no longer qualify for the ORQJI Act.
What if I change jobs during my year with Tulsa Remote?
Please let us know if you change your employment by emailing us at email@example.com. Please note, the change in job status would not affect your Tulsa Remote program standing, so long as you continue to abide by the program requirements and remain located in Tulsa.
