Unemployment Compensation Claims Continue To Level Off In Pa

05.27.20 | Terry Diener

Labor and Industry officials report that jobless claims stand at 2.3 million cases since March 15 - slightly higher than the total tally of 2.1 million one week ago.

Meanwhile, the Labor Department has launched investigations into possible identify fraud involving even state residents who have not applied for unemployment compensation.

The department’s anti-fraud division is investigating attempts by scammers to use personal information obtained from sources outside of L&I to apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits.
