Reemployment Assistance Benefits

CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion can help you get CONNECTed.

You can use the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s (DEO) CONNECT system to claim your weekly Reemployment Assistance benefits, update and monitor your accounts and respond to requests for more information. CONNECT is designed to provide service and convenience.

Reemployment Assistance, formerly referred to as Unemployment Compensation, provides temporary wage benefits to qualified individuals who are out of work through no fault of their own. Florida’s Reemployment Assistance System is administered by DEO. CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion staff cannot determine or offer opinions on eligibility for benefits. CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion does, however, provide resources and job seeker services to help you manage your Reemployment Assistance claims and assist with your reemployment needs.


To learn how to claim weeks in CONNECT and access all the system’s benefits, visit DEO’s CONNECT website.


DEO’s Contact Center offers extended hours Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. The Contact Center hotline is 800-204-2418.
