CareerSource Escarosa, while remaining closed to the public, has drop boxes at both the Pensacola and Milton Career Centers where claimants can drop off their Reemployment Assistance applications if they don’t want to mail them directly to the address listed on the form. CareerSource Escarosa will collect and mail documents daily from those boxes.
The Department of Economic Opportunity has stated no documentation is needed other than this form (no copies of personal ID is needed.) Once claims are received by DEO, claimants will receive a call from a staff person at the state level to verify information as they put claims in the system.
CareerSource Escarosa staff remains available by phone Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. to provide as much assistance as possible for people who run into difficulty with the form. The CONNECT system continues to experience high volumes of calls, and local staff have very limited access to it but we are still working to help people reset their PIN.
