Unemployment Insurance Fraud

Less than $1 billion has been recaptured of the total taxpayer dollars lost in improper UI payments over the course of the pandemic, according to testimony from the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Inspector General Larry Turner, who also raised the “low-end” estimate of the total losses from $87 billion to $163 billion. Outside experts say the number could be as high as $400 billion.

While Republican Committee Members have sounded the alarm on COVID-related fraud for more than a year, the Biden Administration has no idea how many tax dollars have been lost to fraud or improperly paid.
