Beware of Fraudulent Text and Email Messages

DWD WILL NOT send a text or email message asking you to click a link to receive benefits or any type of payment. Clicking on the link and providing personal information (for example your username, password, or social security number) will give fraudsters the ability to sign in to your accounts or sell your information on the dark web.

To report fraudulent messages, please report it to DWD here.


Pursuant to 20 CFR § 603.11, confidential claimant unemployment compensation information and employer wage information may be requested and utilized for other governmental purposes, including, but not limited to, verification of eligibility under other government programs.
