Texas Workforce Commission Identity Verification with ID.Me

Texas Workforce Commission Identity Verification with TWC ID.Me

The state of Texas’s Workforce Commission has revamped how to verify your identity for unemployment benefits payments for the Texas Workforce Commission unemployment insurance benefits system.

Due to rampant unemployment fraud, the state created new verification of identity of unemployment claims.

It started requiring mandatory identity verification for new unemployment claims, and in many cases requiring open claims to verify, or re-verify their identity to the Texas Workforce Commission benefits system.

Understandably this still had some exposed weakness like identity verification in Vegas Vacation.
