Current Narrative:

Registration of UI Claimants with the State's Employment Service

In 2013, Florida began requiring all claimants who filed an initial online claim to complete a full work registration in Employ Florida prior to receiving benefit payments. The full work registration requires the claimant to create an individual account with basic demographic information and an email address on the Employ Florida account. Claimants are required to use the background wizard to provide education, employment and skills information and to post a résumé. This process provides LWDBs with important information used to target reemployment services to claimants. This registration must be completed before claimants receive any benefit payments.
