Unemployment Insurance (UI)

Claimants need fast, equitable access to assistance. Real-time identity intelligence and sophisticated fraud tools are key to delivering it securely.

When it comes to administering unemployment benefits, governments face many hurdles. COVID-19 drove historic claims volume, but bursts of activity occur regularly due to events like natural disasters or mass layoffs. Meanwhile, identity theft and cyberattacks are rampant and growing more sophisticated. Agencies walk a difficult line to serve the right people with the right benefits quickly while protecting program integrity. But with our solutions, there is no need to choose between friction and fraud.
