If you believe you are a victim of identity theft or have received a 1099-G Form from DES and you have not drawn unemployment benefits during that tax year, please call 573-751-4058 and press option 5 to reach our Special Investigations Unit. They will ask you to verify your identity; this will likely require you to visit your local Missouri Job Center and present proof of identity.
Additionally, if your identity has been stolen, it is also important to report it to the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Center for Disaster.
Resource information for victims of identity theft and/or unemployment fraud can be found at www.identitytheft.gov. Click on "Unemployment Insurance Identity Theft -- What to Do Now."
