Unemployment claims are receiving an additional review due to possible fraud.
The Department held the payment of benefits last week while it reviewed claims for potential fraud. Many of those weekly payments were released last Thursday. However, the review of claims has continued in to this week. People whose claims have not yet released do show a status of paid, but with a date of 9/9/9999. This means that the Department is still reviewing the claim and that the payment has not yet been released. When payment is made, the date will be changed to the appropriate date.
