What do you do to prevent social security numbers that have been used fraudulently from being used?

When the department receives information that an identity theft has occurred, we flag the social security number used to file a UI claim. If anyone attempts to use that social security number again, the Department will request additional identifying information from the individual filing the claim. If the true owner of the social security number is not the individual filing the claim, we determine the true owner and deny a claim to the impostor.
