In the state of Florida, most unemployed citizens receive about half of their weekly salary, but the maximum allowed by law is $275 per week. Typically, citizens are only eligible to receive unemployment benefits for 26 weeks.
Those who require unemployment assistance in Florida must go to the state’s website and fill out an unemployed benefits form. The form usually takes about 30 minutes to one hour. The state also offers assistance so that workers can find new employment. Once a new job has been secured, unemployment benefits stop coming from the state. In special cases, extensions may be available.
