Claimants will have to go through a one-time identity verification process

Job Service North Dakota has partnered with ID.me to provide simple and secure online identity proofing. ID.me will be integrated on UI ICE Thursday, Dec. 17.

Unemployment Insurance Claimants who use UI ICE or Job Service’s automated telephone system to certify they are eligible for weekly benefits will be directed to an ID.me login where they go through a one-time identity proofing process. They will need to present an email address, social security number, Photo ID (including Driver’s License, Passport, Passport Card or State ID) and be using either a mobile phone with a camera or a computer. ID.me representatives will be available via video call to help troubleshoot.

The identification verification process may take up to 48 hours to complete from the point ID.me successfully verifies an identity. 

Job Service North Dakota is asking all Unemployment Insurance claimants to log on to UI ICE before Sunday,  Dec. 20 to begin the one-time verification process so that it will not delay your claim certifications or payments. Individuals will be able to begin the process on Thursday, Dec 17.  Those individuals with existing, active claims that are regularly waiting to go through the ID.me verification until they certify their eligibility could see a 24 to 48 hour delay in the receipt of their weekly benefit payment.

The process for users is four easy steps:

1. Click "Verify with ID.me"
2. Create an ID.me account
3. Secure your account
4. Verify your identity

ID.me’s next-generation identity platform provides identity proofing, authentication, and group affiliation verification for government and businesses across sectors. It brings best-in-class identity and fraud capabilities into a comprehensive, easy-to-deploy solution. This partnership will strengthen Job Service North Dakota’s cyber security. ID.me uses stronger encryption than many financial institutions and is certified by the US Government to enable citizens to access sensitive information from federal agencies.

ID.me meets the highest federal standards for online identity proofing and authentication, without compromising access for hard-to-identify groups. ID.me’s technology is used by more than 22 million individuals and 350 partners, including federal and state agencies, healthcare organizations, financial institutions, retailers, and nonprofits.
