Unemployment claim overpayments are costly – and completely avoidable

According to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, unemployment overpayments totaled approximately $1 billion in fraud and non-fraud overpayments at the end of 2022.

What's alarming is that non-fraudulent overpayments – which were caused by errors, misunderstandings, or oversights in the claims process – outpaced fraudulent ones by over 300%.

V+A reduces the risk of unemployment claims

For employers, navigating the landscape of unemployment claims comes with a set of inherent risks. That's why it's imperative to partner with an expert like V+A who will walk you through every step of every step to reduce your risk profile:

  • Reduce your financial risk. Unemployment insurance claims directly affect an employer's tax rate. An increase in the number of claims can result in higher taxes for the employer.
  • Reduce your administrative burden. The process of managing and responding to unemployment claims can be time-consuming and complex. It can divert resources and attention from other crucial business activities.
  • Reduce your overpayment risk. Overpayments often occur due to errors, oversights, or miscommunication in the unemployment claims process. This can lead to financial loss, and potential fines or penalties if not rectified promptly.
  • Reduce your compliance risk. Unemployment insurance is regulated at the federal and state levels, and the rules and regulations are frequently updated. Employers must keep up with these changes to ensure compliance and avoid potential fines or penalties.
  • Reduce your reputation risk. If an employer has a high number of unemployment claims, it could impact the company's reputation. This could make it harder to attract and retain talented employees.
