    Filing Unemployment Goes Digital


    Floridians who want to file for unemployment compensation -- or to update an existing claim -- will now have to do so online.
    Starting Monday, the system will be completely digital. The Agency for Workforce Innovation estimates the switch will save $4.7 million per year in administrative costs.
    Officials say applicants will still be able to call a hotline if they have questions about the filing process, even if they won't be able to file a claim over the phone.
    The agency encourages people without Internet access to use a public computer at a library or community center.
