As of Sunday, April 19, DEO has made over 170,000 payments to Floridians in Reemployment Assistance benefits totaling nearly $60 million.
Over the last two weeks, nearly 24,000 checks for $600 have been mailed to Floridians for their benefits available through the CARES Act. These checks were provided by paper to ensure they were distributed as quickly as possible. Floridians who received their $600 check will receive their state benefits for Reemployment Assistance via direct deposit or prepaid debit card based on their selection made. DEO remains committed to getting benefits out to eligible Floridians as quickly as possible.
