Workforce agencies struggle to manage caseloads due to the risk of over payments and fraud. They often find it difficult to provide benefits and payments promptly in order to meet program standards and beneficiaries’ expectations. In fact, the leading cause of overpayment is now benefit year earnings, which was up 5.7% over the previous year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor IPIA 2020. Therefore, the focus on program integrity is more critical than ever.
