Reporting fraud helps protect unemployment benefits for those who really need them. If you suspect someone may be committing fraud, report it to the Unemployment Insurance Program Integrity Department.
The 1099-G is an IRS form that shows the total unemployment benefits you received and any taxes withheld during the previous calendar year. You will need this information when you file your tax return.
If you have been overpaid unemployment benefits, you will receive a Notice of Determination from the Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA). You will be required to repay the amount of benefits that you were overpaid.
Before an attorney can bill a claimant for legal services in an appeal, DUA must approve the amount of the attorney’s legal fees. This legal requirement applies only to attorneys that are representing claimants, not employers.
