In March of 2021 the Labor Department inspecter general’s office estimates that more than $63 billion has been paid out improperly through fraud or error – roughly 10% of the total amount paid under the coronavirus pandemic-related unemployment program. Experts estimate that as of September 2021 that amount is in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

How ID Proofing Works
The process from a claimant and agency perspective is simple and straightforward. The agency sends out an automated verification email , the claimant receives it and scans their ID and completes the registration process. If the verification is successful, the claimant can proceed down the benefits application process. Although the process appears simple to the claimant, in the background UIDentify is validating a collection of scanned data elements, including those that are not available to fraudsters who have acquired Identification information via a data breach.
