Although CareerSource Brevard is not the unemployment office, we can connect you to the Department of Economic Opportunity to file a claim for Reemployment Assistance. Reemployment Assistance (formerly Unemployment Compensation) provides temporary wage benefits to qualified individuals who are out of work through no fault of their own.
Please note CareerSource Brevard staff members are not employed by Florida’s Reemployment Assistance program and therefore cannot determine or offer opinions on anyone’s eligibility for benefits. CareerSource Brevard can provide computer, Internet, phone and fax access so that you can apply for and make inquiries about eligibility for and receipt of Reemployment Assistance benefits.
You may only file for Reemployment Assistance online. Below are the instructions.
A required on-line skills assessment immediately follows completion of the claim. Completing both take approximately 11/2 hours. It will take 30 minutes to one hour to complete the claim. Before filing your claim, make sure you have the following information available:
Please note that all Reemployment Assistance claimants are required to make contact with five potential employers or meet with a CareerSource Brevard Staffing Specialist and participate in one reemployment service on a weekly basis. For information about your claim or to speak to a claims representative, call (800) 204-2418.
Florida claimants can claim their weeks and manage their Reemployment Assistance benefits online through FLUID.
