Who we serve:  

The Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) program is a federal program that provides intensive reemployment assistance to individuals who are receiving unemployment benefits and are determined likely to exhaust their benefits before becoming reemployed.

What we do:  

The goal of the RESEA program is to provide claimants with a wide array of resources that support reemployment as quickly as possible and connects claimants to reemployment services, including co-enrollment in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) dislocated worker program or other program services, as appropriate.  

Program delivery staff within the OHIOMEANSJOBS Center meet one-on-one with the claimant to assist in the development of an individualized reemployment plan. To successfully assist the RESEA customer, the following will be provided:

  • An Unemployment Compensation eligibility assessment to identify potential issues or barriers to reemployment;   Customized labor market and career information, including information about in-demand occupations;   
  • Registration with the Ohio Workforce Case Management System (OWCMS) and OhioMeansJobs.com;  
  • Information and referral to additional reemployment services and other OhioMeansJobs center services, resources, and training, as appropriate;  
  • An orientation to OhioMeansJobs center services;  
  • An individualized reemployment plan that includes work search activities, accessing services provided through an OhioMeansJobs center or using self-service tools, and/or approved training; and  
  • A follow-up to the individualized reemployment plan
