The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), in partnership with Deloitte, an industry leader in technology and systems integration, will launch CONNECT, the new Reemployment Assistance system, on October 15, 2013. CONNECT will provide employers and third party administrators with a better way to manage RA claims and appeals, update and monitor accounts, and respond to requests for information. CONNECT has been designed to provide employers and third party administrators with improved service and convenience.
WITH CONNECT, YOU CAN:
- Respond to all inquiries regarding claimants electronically.
- File a protest against a benefit charge electronically.
- Submit paper files or forms electronically, such as information related to an appeal.
- Find your claim and appeal information in one convenient place, including whether you have outstanding inquiries, issues to resolve, or appeals-related information to review.
