Who is ID.me?
ID.me is a digital identity protection specialist that helps the NJ Department of Labor make sure your identity is valid – and not someone pretending to be you.
I’ve Verified My Identity – What’s Next?
ID.me will notify NJDOL once your identity has been verified. NJDOL will remove the pending identity verification issue. As this partnership begins, it could take an average of 15 business days to complete the process from the point ID.me successfully verifies your identity . NJDOL is planning additional steps that will increase efficiency and save time for New Jersey unemployment claimants.
What if there are other eligibility issues with my unemployment claim?
If the identity verification issue is the only issue associated with your claim, NJDOL will notify you once your claim is unlocked. If there are additional eligibility issues with your unemployment claim, NJDOL will need additional time to resolve these issues.
