Florida Department Of Economic Opportunity FLDEO Had submitted a paper application of Reemployment Assistance by U.S Mail on 2nd week of April 2020. Only response I ever got from them was an email stating that they received my application, & that they will send me a follow up email after it has been processed. That was on May 1, 2020, 2 months later, still haven't heard back. Tallahassee Florida

This state funded institution that collects unemployment insurance payments from every employer, the Florida Dept. Of Economic Opportunity is in such disarray & irresponsible. Yes I understand that these are times of crisis due to the COVID pandemic, however other states within the U.S have managed to approve unemployment claims & pay out benefits to those impacted by this pandemic. The Florida DEO has also collected funds from the U.S. Government from Congress, as the CARES Act was passed into law in mid March 2020.

Instead of the DEO diligently & effectively in a timely manner taking action to approve & pay out unemployment claims, since around the time they received the funds from the federal government in which was intended to pay each claimant $600/ per week for the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, the Florida Department Of Economic Opportunity has not withdrawn these funds yet from an account in which has earned them between $25 Million or more in interest while thousands of Floridians who applied for benefits remain with their applications unaswered & ghosted.

Whether or not their alleged statements they made as to that their CONNECT system is overloaded & outdated is true & needs to be upgraded, they knew that their hardware & software system that was first established back in 2013 was faulty. They make it difficult to get a hold of any representative you need to talk to, in order for you to get assistance from them with any issues dyou encounter with their website or the CONNECT system.

I myself had read an article somewhere online as well as viewed a youtube video from a Local News broadcasting station from West Palm Beach Florida, in one of their news broadcast videos that discusses about this relentless problem that has plagued many unemployed Floridians, The FLDEO has received most of these Floridian's RA Remployment Assistance applications by mail, & they are sitting inside a trailor where they are being stored behind the DEO office that views claims. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!
