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.
