DEO says to ignore message saying to file new application by Jan 2
Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced Thursday people getting messages on CONNECT that tells them to submit a new application by Saturday should ignore that message.
DEO says it’s working to fix this issue.
It’s still unknown whether claimants will need to file new applications in the future to get the added round of CARES Act benefits.
