Security step by NJ Unemployment Requires action from SUB recipients
Local 825 members who have filed for SUB benefits must provide proof of identity because their social security numbers have been removed from their files by the NJ Unemployment Office as a security measure.
The NJ Unemployment Office made these changes to protect recipients from identity theft, due to an increase in the use of false social security numbers and identity fraud. However, as a result of the removal of SSN numbers from their Certification pages, there is no longer any identifying information for Local 825 to verify deposits.
What you must do
In order to confirm your identity, members must submit one of the following documents to Local 825's S.U.B. Department. You may submit this via Email, Fax or Mail to process your claim.
1. Prior paperwork from your local unemployment office with your Claimant Identification Number and Name (your name can be found on the back of the page).
2. A bank statement that shows the Unemployment Deposit with your name or the last 4 digits of the account number, along with a voided deposit slip or voided check showing your name to cross-reference the deposit.
3. The Unemployment Claim Status Report. Members who choose to submit this report must log out of the NJ Unemployment's web portal. After certifying with NJ Unemployment, go back into the NJ Unemployment website to obtain the Claim Status Report.
(If needed, please print the prior week's report before certifying for the current week. After you certify, if the current week is not present, wait a few minutes to give the system time to update and then log back into the website.)
