The Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) Program is a program funded by the US Department of Labor to help Unemployment Insurance claimants return to work faster. Permanently separated claimants are required to participate in the RESEA program.
Once you have received your first unemployment check, you will receive notification to participate in the RESEA program. You will be required to attend a Career Center Seminar (CCS) and meet other program requirements, which include completing a Career Action Plan (CAP), conducting labor market research, tracking your work search activities, providing a resume, and participating in ongoing reemployment services.
All of your program requirements will be explained to you at the Initial RESEA review, immediately following the CCS, where you will meet one-on-one with a Reemployment Specialist.
Failure to comply with the RESEA program requirements will result in a delay or loss of your unemployment benefits.
You can attend the Career Center Seminar at any of the One-Stop Career Centers across the state. Job seekers do not have to be unemployed to use Career Center services.
Schedule your Career Center Seminar at the Career Center of your choice by calling the Career Center or online through JobQuest. Plan up to three hours for the CCS and it is recommended to arrive 15 minutes early.
The Career Center staff look forward to assisting you with a productive and successful job search.
