Florida is getting a new online unemployment benefits claim system; Connect. The system will be closed from October 9 until October 15 but when it opens, it is expected to be more efficient for employers and job seekers and will be available 24 hours a day, according to an article by Marcia Heroux Pounds in the October 4 Sun Sentinel.
"I hope this system is effective. I have had trouble working with the current unemployment system," said Juan Perez.
As the unemployment claims system has become more computerized, many people have complained that they cannot access the benefits or apply for jobs that are open. It is hoped that this system will be easier for everyone who is facing the difficulty of unemployment to use.
