“Unemployment fraud is at an all-time high, and due to the pandemic, state systems are stressed with high volumes of applicants,” says Matt Thompson, SVP of Identity Solutions at IDEMIA. “With our ID&V and Mobile ID solutions, we are empowering states to process claims more efficiently and distribute benefits faster while reducing fraud. Applicants can complete transactions online, reducing the need for in-person office visits or manual processing of identity documents.”
