jail Unemployment insurance fraud is a crime in Nevada. Fraud is defined as making any false statement relating to a claim for benefits, deliberately withholding information to obtain benefits, failing to report all work and income during a week for which benefits is claimed, filing an unemployment claim while incarcerated or allowing another person to file a claim on your behalf while incarcerated and not disclosing the fact of being incarcerated, or using a name and/or Social Security Number other than your own to file a claim for benefits. If you are found to have committed fraud, you WILL be disqualified until all money is repaid, plus any penalties and interest. You may even be prosecuted for felony theft.

  It is against Federal Law to file for and receive benefits for Unemployment Insurance (including Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) and State Extended Benefits (SEB)) at the same time as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
PLEASE NOTE: If you file for and receive benefits from both programs at the same time, you will be disqualified and liable for the overpayment. This may also constitute fraud which is a felony in Nevada.
