(WWSB)- During a press conference Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis confirmed that he was working with FedEx as a hub for Floridians to pick up a paper unemployment application. Those who have been unable to access the state’s flooded unemployment site can get the application at any FedEx Office Print and Ship Center location and they will also ship the applications to Tallahassee daily if the form is returned by 4 p.m.
“FedEx Office continues to support our communities when and where we can,” said the FedEx Communications advisor, Shannon Davis. “Anyone needing assistance in filing for unemployment in the state of Florida can visit one of our Florida stores to print and complete a copy of the Reemployment Assistance Application Form. FedEx Office will ship all completed applications to the state each day (also free of charge).”
