Unemployment Compensation Fraud Reporting
Unemployment Compensation Fraud is running rampant. We have taken numerous reports regarding this. Folks are usually notified by their employer that someone attempted to get benefits in their name. In addition to reporting the incidents to UC personnel, you will be directed to file a report with police in the jurisdiction in which you reside. If you are a victim of this activity, you can report it online to us, as long as the following criteria are met:
- You live in Lower Allen Township
- You are not out any money
- There was a bona fide attempt by someone else to use your information to claim UC benefits
The online reporting link is here:
Once we receive and process your report, you will receive an incident number and Identity Theft Help Sheet via email. Turnaround on this could take a few days, but in most cases, you should have a response within 24 hours or less.
We will still take reports via normal channels as well (dispatch, walk-in).
If you receive a check and were not supposed to, return it to this address:
