ORLANDO, Fla. – The Department of Economic Opportunity has responded to claimants frustrated by an answering machine with no connection to a real person to take their calls for assistance.
As of Thursday, May 26, Reemployment Assistance claimants now have the option to verify their identities for Reemployment Assistance accounts directly with a “live human agent.”

DEO Press Secretary Morgan Jones told News 6 this new option “does not require the claimant to take a selfie and can be selected once the claimant signs into their ID.me account.”
