Be Alert

These could be signs that someone used your identity to file an unemployment claim.

  • Look for UI notices, checks, debit cards, Form 1099-G or other tax forms related to benefits you did not initiate.
  • Be wary of strangers asking for personal information such as your address or date of birth. This might be a fraudster phishing for information.

If you get any uninitiated notices from the State Unemployment office, be sure to notify:

Remain Vigilant

Be careful who you share information with.

  • Never post any personal identifiable information on Social Media.
  • Never pay to get help with your unemployment claim or benefits.
  • Never cash a benefit check for someone via wire transfer, gift card or cash – this is always a SCAM.
