Program Integrity

  • All new claims data is matched for accuracy against Social Security Administration information.
  • Claimants who are not citizens of the United States are matched against records maintained by Homeland Security, formerly INS.
  • Claimants participate in "Eligibility Reviews" which determine whether they qualify for insurance benefits.
  • Earnings provided by the claimants are verified with their employers.
  • Quarterly wages that are supplied by employers are matched against UI payments to detect overpayments and claimant fraud.
