Floridians who were laid off due to the coronavirus are unable to file for unemployment because the state's application website is broken. For many of us, it has taken many attempts, several hours, days to fill out the application only to be locked out due to website errors.

According to state auditors, the site has more than 600 system errors, which Governor DeSantis was warned about last year. Governor DeSantis must take accountability for this broken application system. An alternative solution must be made. For example, mail-in applications would allow Floridians to continue filing for unemployment while the website is repaired.

If Floridians are unable to submit their applications, we will not qualify for federal unemployment benefits in addition to not receiving state unemployment benefits. We will be unable to afford rent and other bills in the coming months. Our ability to secure food, water, and housing will be severely compromised in the midst of a global pandemic. Governor DeSantis must make immediate repairs to the unemployment application process.
