Unemployment Insurance Fraud

Maintaining the integrity of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) program is important and helps ensure benefits are paid only to those who qualify for benefits under the law and employers are assessed the proper tax rate.

Multiple detection systems are used to detect people who fail to report working and earning wages while claiming unemployment benefits.

The penalties for fraud and concealment are severe. In addition to penalties, any overpaid benefits must be repaid. Repayment methods include income tax interception, wage garnishments, property liens and payment plans.
