UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE REEMPLOYMENT
SERVICES AND ELIGIBILITY ASSESSMENT (UI RESEA)
UI RESEA is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor to help unemployment insurance
claimants return to work faster. Claimants are randomly selected to participate. If you are selected, you will
receive a notification within five weeks of initiating your claim that advises you to report for an in-person meeting.

and efforts. You will receive information about the
services available through the American Job Centers as well as
