Feinstein, Padilla, Pelosi to Biden Administration: Help States Combat Unemployment Benefits Fraud

Press Release

Senators Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (all D-Calif.) today sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to create a federal task force to help states combat organized criminal unemployment benefits fraud.

"California and many other states are experiencing fraud at a much greater rate than previously understood--perpetrated by international and interstate criminal organizations moving from state to state--in the payment of state unemployment benefits," the letter to President Biden read. "Therefore, we ask that you create a federal task force to help coordinate and support states in identifying, preventing, and combatting unemployment benefit fraud by international and interstate criminal organizations, while also ensuring that states are able to process benefits claims for deserving recipients as quickly as possible."
