GUIDANCE FOR SEEKING UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS?
The Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) has announced new requirements and application processes for individuals seeking unemployment benefits:
If you are self-employed, a contracted worker or gig worker and applied for unemployment benefits prior to April 4, the DEO has advised that claimants must resubmit a new unemployment claim.
The DEO has released a “Benefits Scenario” flow chart to advise claimants how to apply for benefits based on their current unemployment status.
If you are seeking to apply for a new unemployment benefit claim, claimants should apply at https://covid19.floridajobs.org.
