 ReEmployCT: Connecticut's New Tax and Benefits System


On July 5, 2022, the Connecticut Department of Labor (CTDOL) launched the state’s new unemployment system, ReEmployCT. The new system replaces the agency’s existing 40-year-old technology and streamlines the filing process for unemployed workers and the approximately 115,000 employers who pay into the state’s Unemployment Trust Fund.

Connecticut is part of a coalition of states using the ReEmploy system—it helps Connecticut save money on operational costs and allowed us to bring in federal funding to develop, build, and launch the new system.

A little about ReEmployCT:

  • It is one system that replaces several existing systems at CTDOL;
  • It has a single sign-on for claimants;

  • It brings many components of unemployment online for both claimants and employers to reduce the need to mail or fax documents;

  • It will reduce the number of filings for some employers;

  • It improves agency efficiency by reducing repetitive manual processing; and

  • The technology improves accounting and reporting as well as data analysis.
Why July 5th?

If you ask our experts, they’ll tell you this is CTDOL’s nod to ‘independence from our antiquated systems. It’s also because it’s the start of a fiscal quarter, which is important for businesses who pay unemployment taxes, and it’s traditionally when the number of unemployment weekly filers is the lowest.
