The Insurance and Unemployment Fraud Division investigates and prosecutes those who commit fraud against insurers and against the Commonwealth's unemployment insurance and workers' compensation system. This includes automobile, health care, and disability fraud.
The Division prosecutes these crimes to protect both Massachusetts consumers and the integrity of the insurance system. These efforts help protect taxpayers from higher premiums and taxes that result from fraud and assuring that those in need receive appropriate services.
In Fiscal Year 2010, the Insurance and Unemployment Fraud Division’s prosecutions and casework obtained over $750,000 in restitution orders in 69 matters.
