To better serve our claimants and prevent Unemployment Insurance fraud, the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) is partnering with ID.me to verify claimant identification.
ID.me is free for claimants to identify themselves and is a secure method for validating personal information, ensuring your unemployment claim account is not accessed by someone else.
ID.me offers support, including video chat with trained staff members to help you quickly and easily verify your identity.
When you are asked to verify your identity, you will be directed to the GDOL ID.me validation page and given steps to follow.
Upon successful verification, you will receive an email within 24 hours advising of any further steps. Your identity must be verified by the deadline to avoid further delay or denial of unemployment benefits.
