Reducing benefit fraud and preserving program integrity
You’re being pulled in many directions, responsible for managing benefits for a large population of recipients. You know that ineligible recipients could be costing your agency millions of dollars but you don’t have the analytical tools that can help you pinpoint benefit abusers. You don’t know the extent of overpayment because you lack a means to track it.
Your agency lacks the people, time and data access to determine which individuals are fraudulently receiving benefits. With data access limited to your state’s Department of Corrections database, you can’t search other states’ incarceration databases to locate individuals who may be fraudulently receiving benefits.
There’s no money in your budget to hire additional staff to weed out ineligible recipients. Your agency’s integrity is being compromised and overpayment to ineligible recipients is a serious problem.
With real-time access to 85% of the nation’s jail incarceration data, you and your staff can more efficiently locate ineligible recipients across the U.S. Thanks to your data solution, you’re successfully weeding out benefit abusers without additional staff for conducting searches. You know your data source is timely and reliable.
You can now automatically monitor specific populations you select, ranging from active warrants and to persons of interest under investigation, to municipal court warrants and restitution obligators. With staff time freed up from monitoring, they can refocus their energy on helping eligible recipients.
Your agency is working more productively, significantly reducing overpayments, and enhancing the integrity of your program.

In 2012, Appriss Safety worked with the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). Appriss Safety and IDES were able to cross match unemployment benefit recipients against the incarceration records that Appriss manages in its database.
Working with Appriss Safety, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) conducted a project comparing 2012 unemployment insurance recipients against incarceration data provided by Appriss.
