LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Information regarding unemployment

April 17, 2020
By Marcy Shortuse

Letter to Editor, 
I have information that might be helpful to anyone trying to apply for Florida unemployment. I have unsuccessfully tried to call or go online for over a week and have logged more than 26 hours online only to get booted off repeatedly. 
However, I was able to finally get through to a local Port Charlotte office staff person. Although, the office is closed due to social distancing, paper applications are in a box at the front door of the office located at 3745 Tamiami Trail  Port Charlotte, Florida. You can fill them out and mail them to Tallahassee. 
Hope this information helps.
