Along with the astronomical increase of unemployment claims filed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, state unemployment agencies across the country have been dealing with fraudulent claims and data breaches. The reasons for the increase in fraudulent unemployment claims vary but are mainly a result of outdated software, system negligence, and general claims volume. Corporate Cost Control (A Part of Experian Employer Services) has provided an Unemployment Fraud Guide to assist employers in managing these claims.

Although in most of the US it’s business as usual with people returning to work, we have NOT seen a slowdown in fraudulent activity and data breaches. The most recent announcement issue occurred in Florida, with the Department of Economic Opportunity giving notice to almost 60,000 claimants of a system data breach. Florida discovered the breach on July 16, 2021, when it was determined “malicious actors” were targeting claimant accounts.

FL DEO notes that suspicious activity “may have” occurred between April 27, 2021, and July 16, 2021. The data released to the “malicious actors” may include:
· The claimant’s social security number.
· Driver’s license number.
· Bank account number.
· Other personal details (address, phone number, date of birth).
