About the Unemployment Insurance Integrity Center

The Unemployment Insurance Integrity Center is designed to assist states in their efforts to improve integrity in the unemployment insurance program.  The Center is a joint Federal and state initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and operated by NASWA. The Center’s mission is to be a resource for integrity strategies, information, focusing particularly on the prevention, detection, and recovery of improper payments, fraud and delinquent employer contributions. 

The Center is working to provide a single place for states to access information, resources and promising practices related to UI program integrity. Here are the current efforts underway:

  • A UI integrity database of strategies and best practices is being built through outreach to UI Directors.  Learn more about the Center’s State Engagement Effort and the State Portfolio Database.

  • A National Integrity Academy is being developed to provide training resources to states. To learn more about the National Integrity Academy, click here
