Unemployment benefits now available on-line
You can now sign up for unemployment benefits on-line. The new "connect" unemployment claims system went online this week.
This 63-million dollar system replaces one that had been used for over 30 years.
More than 300 new lines were added to accommodate questions about the new system, but some people say they still spent hours trying to sign up.
The Florida department of economic opportunity says they will work hard to solve the problems.
