The US Department of Labor reported that claims for benefits rose from 70,000 to a seasonally adjusted 281,000 last week. That was the weekly total highest since September 2, 2017, following Hurricane Harvey.
In Florida, these benefits are called reemployment assistance and are designed to help people who have recently been unemployed because they were fired or if they left their employer.
People who were laid off due to COVID-19 should apply for these benefits as soon as possible. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released information about applying for reemployment benefits amid the pandemic through the website.
Who qualifies due to the coronavirus, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity:
People who have been ordered to quarantine by a medical professional or government agency.
Those who are laid off or sent home without pay for an extended period by their employer due to COVID-19.
Those caring for an immediate family member who is diagnosed with the virus.
