FRAUD ALERT! Protect Your Unemployment Insurance Benefits!
Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) has announced that criminals using stolen personal information from prior national data breaches are attempting to file fraudulent unemployment claims through the Massachusetts Unemployment System. This is part of a national unemployment fraud scheme. If you believe someone has applied for unemployment benefits falsely using your personal data, please report the fraud here: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/report-unemployment-benefits-fraud
In an effort to protect the integrity of the unemployment system, DUA is implementing additional identity verification measures. Unfortunately, this will temporarily delay payments for many unemployment claims in Massachusetts, and some unemployment claimants may be asked to provide additional identity information to verify their claim.
