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 Integrity Center provides a single place for states to access information, resources and promising practices related to UI program integrity:

  • A UI integrity database of strategies and best practices, the State Practices Portal, is available for UI Directors.  Learn more about the Center’s State Engagement Effort and the State Practices Portal.
  • The National Integrity Academy provides training resources to states. To learn more about the National Integrity Academy, click here
  • The Knowledge Exchange Library provides well-organized and relevant information to the UI community. Click here for more information.
  • Integrity Data Hub (IDH) is a centralized, multi-state data analysis tool which allows participating UI agencies to cross-match UI claims against a database of information associated with potentially fraudulent claims or overpayments. More details can be found here.
  • The Integrity Center held a symposium April 11-12 2018. You can view materials from the symposium here
