Illinois Uncovers $1M in Unemployment Fraud

New prevention efforts have stopped more than one million dollars in unemployment fraud in Illinois in just three months.

Illinois Department of Employment Security Spokesperson Greg Rivara says a new working group is taking aim at fraud by stopping payments to those trying to cheat the system…and to those who make an honest mistake.

Rivara says in the past, payments went out and the state had to go to great lengths to try and recover the money.
