Unemployment Claim (UC) Fraud
Do you suspect that you are a victim of Unemployment Claim fraud?
If you received a 1099-G form for unemployment income you didn’t receive or were made aware by your employer or state agency, you likely are a victim of identity theft. In addition to the steps above, you should submit a corrected 1099-G form to the IRS along with your tax return.
We recommend that you contact your tax preparer to assist you with this matter in reporting the misinformation to the IRS. We also recommend you contact the Unemployment Fraud Agencies below.
If you have additional questions regarding your case, please contact our Alerts & Restoration department at 1-800-726-1421. This department is open Monday-Friday, 9 am-7 pm ET.
