“...then when they open Monday the flood gates they probably won’t even get into a DEO’s Website, because all of the new layoffs start going in there and trying to apply,” said Jill Nugent on Sunday night.

Nugent was right.

When the ​ Department of Economic Opportunity Connect’s website went back online Monday morning, many people received error messages.

Sandee Ballard tells ABC 7 on the phone, says every time she tries to access her application today, the site goes down.

“I’ve been trying to do that part but what time is it? I’ve been trying to do that since 10:45 AM and I’ve been able to login started. But I can’t get through the whole process it keeps kicking me out”. explains Ballard.

But the DEO’s Reemployment Assistance Claims Dashboard

has been working well.

In fact, the DEO is now offering new data on unemployment claims.
