Florida Unemployment Office Locations

If you are a resident or worker in the state of Florida and are jobless or partially unemployed, you may be able to collect unemployment compensation (UC) benefits. Visiting a Florida office of unemployment is one of the steps toward determining whether you would be eligible for benefits and for how long.

Sometimes it is difficult to contact to the FL unemployment phone number, or you have issues that the website just can’t answer, then you have to go to talk to someone face to face at the FL unemployment office.

There is perhaps a FL unemployment office in your town or county. Most states have one in every county. Be ready to wait in long lines as many people are applying for unemployment at the same time and your local Florida unemployment office could be crowded.

If you do not have internet access to file unemployment claim, public computers are available at your local One-Stop Career Center.

    I was employed with a Florida company and was let go yesterday. I need to apply for unemployment benefits. I need to know who to call for starting the process.

  3. Lillian says:

    I’m receiving unemployment benefits from the state of Florida. I filed when I was layoff the end of March 2014. When I get on line it’s says I only have a little over 800.00 dollars to receive as my unemployment benefits. I have only been receiving unemployment since April 2014. My question is if I don’t get a job by the time the 800.00 dollars is used can I still receive benefits. My sister collected for two years.

    • Adrian says:

      What you have in the account is the max. you can receive.

      Please get in touch with the labor dept in your state for specific information.

  4. Mary says:

    I moved from PA in November. I have worked at a seasonal job in FL from November to May. When I applied for unemployment the FL reemployment office told me I had to file in PA. My claim has been denied. Why do I have to file in PA? I wasnt unemployed in PA. This is very frustrating. No matter what I do online for the FL website I keep getting bounced back to the same page.

    • Adrian says:

      Generally,you should be filing from the state where you worked.

      Please call the customer service of the labor dept FL and insist on speaking to a supervisor.

  5. William Schultz says:

    I have been working 40 hours per week. My hours have just been cut to 20 hours per week. Am I eligible for unemployment and if I am how much would I get? I make the minimum wage.

    • Adrian says:

      You can apply for the lost hours in a week.”How much” depends on various factors.

      Please consider applying.

    For a week now I have been attempting to file for unemployment “ON LINE” to no avail having to answer ridiculous questions about my credit score, etc. PLEASE where is the closest Unemployment Offices for Palm Beach Gardens. It used to be so simple to get in touch with a State Agency.

    • Adrian says:

    How do I go about requesting a duplicate W-2 form for 2012?

      As long as I am aware,its the 1099-G that you should be looking for, if you’ve availed unemployment insurance from the state.Please speak to the customer service of the labor department for more details on this.

      If you’re actually looking for the W 2,please contact the employer or the issuing authority.

  12. Craig johnson says:

    I remember when you could go to a local office and post jobs for your business , it appears as though florida not only wants to make it difficult to file claims, from what I’ve discovered on the internet, it is very confusing and difficult to get past first page.! But it is very difficult to post jobs in your area. Good going Gov. Scott keep those numbers high so you can blame the opposition for high unemployment. Obviously you don’t know anything about business. Do the state a favor and quit!
