Avoid Costly Mistakes

Report Accurately

Collecting disability based on false, misreported, or unreported information is committing disability insurance fraud. If you are filing or reopening a claim, or certifying for DI benefits, you are legally responsible to follow the requirements set by state law. You could face serious penalties and consequences for committing DI fraud.

If you think you may have accidentally committed disability insurance fraud, contact us immediately by phone, by mail, or online.

Register for myEDD
