WHAT IF I RECEIVED A 1099 BUT NEVER FILED FOR BENEFITS?

In some cases, specifically where fraud occurred in the PUA program, there was no way to remove 100% of the fraudulent claims prior to the 1099 distribution. If fraud was already reported on the claim, the claim was stopped and a fraud note was places on the claim; however, when the program ran the 1099 process, there was no automated way to remove claims with a fraud note. If you have not reported a fraudulent claim prior to receiving the 1099, or as a precaution, would like to submit a fraud report because you received a 1099 for benefits you did not receive, click the link below and complete the form.
