Case Study: Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation

State governments face a significant challenge with fraud, which can take many forms and result in substantial financial losses. Agencies must stay vigilant and take proactive steps to combat fraud, ensuring that public funds are used for their intended purposes and protecting the integrity of the state’s financial systems. Discover how Nelnet was able to help this Nevada state agency accurately and efficiently address a rapid influx of claims.

The Challenge

The detection and prevention of fraud can be complex and resource intensive, requiring sophisticated fraud detection systems, robust data analytics, and highly trained staff. Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) determined it was inadequately staffed to investigate, adjudicate, and recover fraudulent claims internally due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the state’s unemployment rate.

The Solution

To support Nevada’s DETR with identifying fraudulent activity impacting the state and claimants, Nelnet was awarded a four-year contract. As part of this contract, Nelnet provides this state agency with back-office staff and 75 full-time contact center agents to provide these valuable services.

Back-Office Processing

Nelnet’s back-office staff reviews unemployment claims to determine their authenticity.

Contact Center

Nelnet’s agents use outbound email, telephone, and other communications to beneficiaries and their employers, obtaining documentation necessary to validate their unemployment claims.

The Results

With Nelnet’s help, Nevada’s DETR was able to efficiently and accurately review and investigate overpayments and fraudulent claims, and improve proficiency for achieving the targeted number of reviews.
