Report Unemployment Fraud

DWD WILL NOT send claimants a test message

As a reminder, DWD WILL NOT send claimants a text message. If you receive a text from someone claiming to be us, do NOT click on the link. Clicking the link could give fraudsters access to information on your phone which could then allow them to take over your UI account.

If you receive a text, please immediately report it to DWD via this page.

IMPORTANT:

Thank you for taking the time to report possible unemployment fraud. Your assistance is invaluable as we work to ensure that the state’s unemployment funds are directed to the people who need them most.
