Unemployment Fraud is a new type of identity theft, and at CCC, we are seeing an increase throughout the country and across industries. CCC recognizes that while these claims are frustrating, they can be stopped quickly by being aware of the issue and working closely with state unemployment agencies.

The first indication that an unemployment claim may be fraudulent is when the employee is currently employed or there is no record of employment. In these cases, CCC will immediately contact our client to ensure that we have all of the necessary information to communicate the issue to the state unemployment agency.  Each state has a specific contact and procedure for reporting fraudulent claims. If your organization does not utilize CCC’s services, you can get the fraud contact information from the Department of Labor.

CCC also advises that our client inform affected employees to contact the agency to notify them they did not open an unemployment claim. By having both the employer and the employee communicating with the state unemployment agency, the claim will be flagged much more quickly, and benefits prevented or discontinued from being paid.

Many states are attempting to take proactive steps to stop these fraudulent claims. Recently, Oklahoma state sent a notice to employers outlining what steps they are taking as an agency and what employers can do to assist them in reducing the number of fraudulent payments being made to these identity thieves. For your convenience, CCC has put a copy of the bulletin out on our website.
