ID.me has helped many Georgia residents receive their unemployment benefits after months of uncertainty.
“Unemployed Georgians will be sent to ID.Me to verify their identity for different reasons, but GDOL says 70 percent were due to employers making a mistake on their employee’s claim.
As for the fraudsters caught through the ID.me tool, the Department of Labor says it begins an investigation into the individuals, which can result in charges and even jail time.”
