Reporting Fraud - Unemployment ID Fraud

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is encouraging Texans to use extreme caution on social media amid a dramatic increase in unemployment identity fraud. Although no TWC system has been compromised, a record number of identity fraud cases shows just how important it is to be vigilant in securing private information.

TWC recommends using our secure online portal to report any suspected ID fraud related to unemployment benefit claims. 
Go to  UI Fraud Submission

However if you cannot use the online portal, please call the TWC Fraud Hotline at 800-252-3642.

Employers Should Verify Names and SSNs Online because:

Correct names and SSNs on wage reports are the keys to the successful processing of your quarterly tax report submissions and calculation of taxes due.

Verification will prevent the need to make tax report corrections.
