Changes announced by the Department of Labor & Industry, Pennsylvania, require employers to update their PA labor law posters.

The Office of Unemployment Compensation has issued a new form that requires “Employer Account Number” to be displayed in the employer’s name and address section.

Other changes include:

  • Claimants must now report gross wages when claiming UC benefits.
  • The “Driver’s License Number” has been dropped as a requirement when filing for Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits.
  • As listed on the form, the following information is needed to file a claim:

    • Social Security Number
    • Alien registration number (if not a U.S. citizen)
    • Complete mailing and home address
    • Name and address of employer(s)
    • Dates of employment and reasons for leaving
    • Employer information form (if you have one)
    • Most recent pay stub (optional, but helpful)
    • PIN number (if you have one from a prior claim)
  • The form now clearly states that Computer cross matching is used to detect the illegal receipt of UC payments resulting from unreported work and earnings or unreported pensions.
  • The form also includes an expanded section on penalties, which states
  • A person who knowingly makes a false statement or knowingly withholds information to obtain UC benefits commits a criminal offense under section 801 of the UC Law, 43 P.S. §871, and may be subject to a fine, imprisonment, restitution and loss of future benefits.
