LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation (DETR) has announced modifications to the state’s unemployment insurance system.

The Board of Examiners approved a plan to make it simpler to file for unemployment benefits. According to DETR, the project will be supported with $72 million from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan funding.

“The UI Modernization project kicking off soon is going to be a huge leap forward. This will make it significantly easier for eligible Nevadans to get paid the benefits they need. It will be a boost for businesses to track payments and claims. And it will make this work easier for staff,” DETR Director Elisa Cafferata said.

DETR has chosen FAST as the new mechanism for unemployment filing. According to reports, FAST has collaborated with various states on unemployment programs. DETR has recruited project management consultancy CSG to ensure that all project teams are working together and fulfilling deadlines.

However, don’t anticipate immediate results. According to DETR, the project will take up to four years to shift all information to the new system and have it up and operating.
