I've applied by mail and online (new website they are touting now)....

I have not received any correspondence from the state.

I have never voted for anyone in the GOP and won't start now.

"The system was implemented in a way for it to be a total failure. Why? Because it would keep the politician looking good by pretending that less people are filing for unemployment when the reality is, even before the pandemic, people were having a really hard time not only applying but in getting benefits," said state Sen. Annette Taddeo, a Miami Democrat who has been besieged with calls from constituents looking for relief.

Wouldn't be surprised if it were in a Florida government and charity handbook.  Take money for a purpose you never intend to help with.  Set up with l errors to stop almost everyone from actually receiving help that would cost the money.  Get credit for helping.

Didn't they set that state adrift a while back??

Sadly unless there is restrictive national plan this will probably never end, that would mean trusting the president

Florida unemployment system is criminally mismanaged--and that came from someone in the governor's office.

there was a story linked here detailing this not too long ago

You can blame Rick Scott for its failure.

They voted for a small, weak government that allowed people to sink or swim by their own efforts with no assistance so they could show everyone how tough and resilient they were in the face of adversity.

And that's exactly what they got.

Well that and the DEO Executive Director was the former head of the state agency that paid Pit Bull $1Million off the books and hid the transaction.

My work group got the notice a few weeks ago that we should get ready to jump in and help get this fixed.  After that, crickets.  I did get a log in so I was able to push my wife's app through.
