Unemployment Filing Fraud Image

With a reported uptick in national unemployment filing fraud, we want to remind you to guard your personal information such as your birthdate and Social Security number. Fraudsters have sophisticated ways to steal your information via text, email, and social media.

Red flags indicating you may be a victim of fraudulent unemployment insurance claims

  • You file a lawful UI claim on behalf of yourself, receive a notice that your claim was rejected because SWA has already received a claim under your name;
  • You did not apply for UI benefits but received a determination letter that an application has been received under your name;
  • You received a notification that you failed the security verification process for your UI claim;
  • You are told by a current or former employer that a UI claim has been submitted with your PII; and
  • Report Unemployment Identity Theft.
