The U.S. Department of Labor recently noted that during the week of February 15, 2021, 730,000 unemployment claims were filed nationally, well in excess of pre-pandemic levels, when claims average just over 200,000 per week were filed. Many state unemployment agencies have been overwhelmed since the COVID-19 pandemic started, receiving more claims within months than is normally the case over the course of the year.
This was an attractive scheme for cyber criminals and scammers due to their sheer volume of claims and additional federal funding available as well as states lifting certain requirements for benefits due to COVID-19.
Employers can be the only defence, and the only one to be aware of the potential identity theft, against theft of unemployment funds from their employees. SST recommend that you take the following measures as soon as possible in order to receive a claim for an individual who is currently working for you:
