UI Integrity Center

The National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) has joined forces with the US Department of Labor and the New York State Department of Labor to support the Unemployment Insurance Integrity Center of Excellence.

The Center is a laboratory of innovation for integrity strategies in unemployment insurance, established to assist in preventing, detecting and recovering improper payments.

Current Efforts

The Center is working to provide a single place for states to access information, resources and promising practices related to UI program integrity. Here are the current efforts underway:
  • A UI integrity database of strategies and best practices is being built through outreach to UI Directors.
  • Training curricula is being designed and developed.
  • An integrity improvement funding process is being developed to support state initiatives.
  • A pilot program is being established to validate the integrity data hub concept.
  • The agenda was developed and presenters are being determined for the 2016 UI Integrity Symposium.
