IDES launches Inmate Cross-Matching


The Illinois Department of Employment Security has initiated an inmate cross-match program to protect taxpayers, prevent fraud and abuse, and help the economy.

 

The database will be matched against inmate lists from Illinois county jails and state prisons. Among the requirements to be eligible for unemployment insurance is the ability to be available to work. The new system would identify individuals who are incarcerated, but receiving a benefit payment.

 

According to the IDES, the temporary dollars are often spent at the local grocery, gas station and clothing store, thereby supporting the local economy. They say every $1.00 in unemployment benefits generates nearly $1.63 in economic activity.
