Incarceration Verification
Monitor beneficiary incarceration status

Product Overview

Incarcerated individuals are ineligible to receive unemployment benefits, as they are unable to actively search for employment – one of the primary criteria necessary for eligibility. Incarceration verification makes timely data available to workforce agencies and allows agencies to locate and monitor incarcerated beneficiaries, with the end goal of eliminating improper payments and increasing savings. We can connect workforce agencies to real-time, nation-wide incarceration data

Connecting Data

Equifax can connect you with the nation’s most comprehensive and current incarceration data network, with direct jail management system interfaces to over 2,000 jails and DOC facilities. Collaborating with workforce agencies across the country, we have identified a critical need for access to real-time incarceration data to successfully locate and monitor beneficiaries that are in the various stages of incarceration.

How it Works

The incarceration solution connects state workforce agencies access with timely data that helps allow agencies to identify and cease fraudulent unemployment insurance payments.

Another incarceration verification option allows agencies to place watches on their UI claimant lists, and receive alerts when a monitored claimant is:

  • Booked into custody
  • Released from custody
  • Incarcerated for a certain length of stay
  • Identify potential fraud risk at the point of application on a sample of initial claims’ population
