09/13/2022: Correspondence regarding proof of identity

Correspondence has recently been mailed to some former unemployment claimants regarding proof of identity. No action is needed if you are not currently filing for unemployment.

However, if you received this letter and file for unemployment insurance in the future, you will be required to provide proof of ID at that time. Please contact us at 1-800-593-7660 if you have any questions. MDOL regrets any confusion caused by the correspondence.
