Notification on Minnesota Unemployment Insurance Fraud

It has recently come to our attention that there has been an increase in Minnesota Unemployment Insurance filing fraud. Based on recent reports, fraudulent filings may have the following characteristics:

 

·       A fraudulent request for unemployment benefits is submitted using information, such as Social Security Number (SSN), retrieved through currently unknown means.

 

·       Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) creates an account and generates mail via USPS to the individual’s home address notifying them that an unemployment benefits account was created for them.
