Suspension of CT DOL's RESEA Program: The state Department of Labor is suspending the federal Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment work-search program effective immediately.
This program involves a more intensive process that mandates recipients of unemployment insurance go to the American Job Centers in person and receive one-on-one help.
CT DOL anticipated serving 9,030 people this year. Suspending this program will reduce traffic in the centers and help limit in-person contact with the public. The agency still anticipates reaching its goal of serving 9,030 people this year.
Effective 3.18.20, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will close all branch offices to the public for the transaction of business. Employees will continue to assist in transactions that are completed online, through the mail, and by phone.
DMV partners, including AAA and Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union will make independent determinations of whether to conduct license transactions.
The DMV will also be offering a 90-day extension to Connecticut residents with expiring driver’s licenses, identification cards, and learner’s permits. There will be no late fees. This applies to credentials that expire between March 10, 2020 and June 8, 2020.
