Possible Scam

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) is actively investigating a possible scam in which the perpetrators steal the identities of currently employed workers and then file unemployment applications in order to fraudulently collect benefits.

Employers: If you receive a letter from ODJFS requesting employment-separation information, please be sure the request is not regarding someone you currently employ. If it is, please call the Office of Unemployment Compensation's Benefit Payment Control office at (800) 686-1555, option 1, to report the potential fraud and to receive further instructions.

As a reminder, employers should always carefully review their benefit-charge statements and requests for information to ensure that they are accurate!

Methods for Reporting Suspected Fraud
Electronic Data Sharing Can Save Time and Money

ODJFS offers new ways to report separation information electronically, for faster, more efficient and more secure processing. The State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES) and SIDES E-Response provide a standard format also used by other states. The best option depends on the needs of each individual employer or third-party administrator (TPA). To learn more, click here.
