LAKE MARY, Fla. - The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO) announced over the weekend that those seeking unemployment benefits will have to claim their weeks every two weeks to keep receiving benefits.
Beginning Monday at 8 a.m., people will be able to log in to the CONNECT system to claim their benefits.
Benefits must be claimed for both Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and those seeking state re-employment assistance.
In a series of tweets, the FDEO explained the process, saying people making claims will be required to answer work search questions, but those questions will not impact whether or not they will receive their benefits.
Governor Ron DeSantis waived that requirement through May 30, but claimants still have to fill out those questions.
