Audit: $6.2 Million in Unemployment Paid to Prisoners

An audit by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor has identified approximately $6.2 million in Unemployment Insurance benefits paid by the Louisiana Workforce Commission to 1,195 incarcerated individuals who were not eligible to receive them during the period of January 2020 through November 2020. 

The analysis found that 92 individuals received only one week of benefits while they were incarcerated and that the remaining 1,103 individuals received unemployment benefits for more than one week, 

LWC has reportedly flagged the individuals identified by the LLA for further review. In addition, LWC is working through the cases identified as potential fraud and/or overpayments and attempting to recover the funds.
