Labor Department may call you to confirm unemployment benefits
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - In an effort to protect Vermonters from fraudulent filers, the Labor Department may call you to confirm some information.
This only applies to first-time filers who opened up a new unemployment benefits claim starting Tuesday. Officials say those who get a call should ask the representative to provide more information to identify themselves. Claimants who do not validate their identity with the labor department will likely see a delay in payment.
