Florida Unemployment System Scheduled to Shutdown Next Week
On October 15, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), in partnership with Deloitte, an industry leader in technology and systems integration, will launch a new way to claim your weekly Reemployment Assistance benefits, update and monitor your accounts, and respond to requests for information. Known as CONNECT, this new system will provide you with better service and convenience.
In order to transition your information to the new CONNECT system, the RA website will be unavailable from noon on Wednesday, October 9, through Tuesday, October 15 at 7:59 a.m. EST.
Depending on the day you usually claim your weeks, you may need to claim on a different day before the launch of CONNECT.
WITH CONNECT, YOU WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO:
- Access your account 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
- View all of your claim information in one convenient place, including whether you have weeks to claim, issues to resolve, or any requests for additional information to process your claim.
- Update information anytime – including change of address or phone number.
- Choose the way you receive notifications from us – either electronically or by U.S. mail.
