As you will see, you will need the following information before filing:

  • Driver’s license or State ID number
  • Your employment for the last 18 months including for each employer:
  • Name, address, and phone number
  • First and last day of work
  • Gross earnings (before taxes are taken out) during the listed dates
  • The reason for separation
  • FEIN (this is found on any W2 or 1099 tax forms you have received)
  • If you don’t have the FEIN, you can use employer details off of a recent paystub  
  • Claims filed without correctly reporting employers may experience delays. It is important to list the correct employment information when filing your claim. If you fail to do so, your benefits may be delayed while the missing employment information is obtained

Additionally, if you are one of the following, make sure you have this information available:

  • Not a U.S. citizen: Alien registration number or other work authorization form
  • Military employee: DD-214 member 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 may be used
  • Federal employee: SF 8 or SF 50
  • Union member: union name, hall number, and phone number

Reemployment Assistance Benefits can be filed online using CONNECT. Please CLICK HERE. If you have never filed in Florida before, click on “File a New Claim.” However, if you have filed previously, log in using your Social Security Number and Personal Identification Number (PIN).
