BAM Operational Rate Overpayments by Cause -- CY 2006

Readers are strongly cautioned that it may be misleading to compare one state's payment accuracy rates with another state's rates.
No two states' written laws, regulations, and policies specifying eligibility conditions are identical, and differences in these
conditions influence the potential for error. States have developed many different ways to determine monetary entitlement to UI.
Additionally, nonmonetary requirements are, in large part, based on how a state interprets its law. Two states may have identical
laws, but may interpret them quite differently. States with stringent or complex provisions tend to have higher improper payment
rates than those with simpler, more straightforward provisions.(To compare state laws visit
