RESEA is an extension of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits Program.

The primary goals for the RESEA program are to:

  • Improve employment outcomes for individuals that receive unemployment compensation (UC) and to reduce average duration of receipt of UC through employment
  • Strengthen program integrity and reduce improper payments; promote alignment with the broader vision of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)—increasing program integration and service delivery for job seekers
  • Establish RESEA as an entry point to other workforce system partner programs for individuals receiving UC.

How to get started

The automatic selection system within NDOL UI is used to identify automatically schedule the claimant for the 1:1 meeting via the NEworks Events Calendar. This automated process occurs twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday night) to identify claimants most likely in need of resources and support to gain meaningful employment. As individuals are scheduled into an NEres event, a Notice of Requirement to Report letter is mailed to the listed address in NEworks for the claimant and also sent to the claimant through the NEworks Message center

1330 N Street
