It has been reported that over 36 billion dollars were stolen in 2020 by criminals filing fraudulent unemployment claims under the names of other people. Now in the recently enacted Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021, Congress mandated that State agencies administering Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) claims verify the identity of unemployed applicants. The Act also provides federal funding to help state agencies implement new identity verification procedures.
