Recently Kansas Department of Labor shut down their unemployment system after a month-long surge of fraudulent unemployment claims, to implement new security measures.

As reported by Governor Laura Kelly, during her most recent Covid-19 Briefing, Kelly suggested that the majority of over 10,000 unemployment claims from last week, were likely fraudulent. The state is hoping that while fraudulent claim numbers have been high, that the new security measures will begin to target any further fraudulent claims.

On January 27, the Kansas Department of Labor announced a partnership with LexisNexis to “deploy identity verification software for unemployment insurance accounts and claims.” The state shut down its unemployment system last weekend so that it could get the system implemented as soon as possible.  The new security system requires that claimants verify their identity through a variety of security questions regarding a claimant’s credit history, as well as two-factor authentication.
