What is ID.me?
ID.me is our trusted and federally-certified technology partner for secure digital identity verification. ID.me helps make sure you're you — and not someone pretending to be you — when you request access to your benefits. ID.me's online identity verification service is available 24-hours per day, 7 days a week. Most claimants are able to complete their ID.me identity verification using a self-guided process that takes a few minutes.

To verify your identity:
Visit the UC dashboard and click the "Sign In/Register" button as shown.
Sign in with an existing PA username and password or click the "Create a User Account" button to register.
Next, confirm your information.
Confirm you are submitting a new
Unemployment Compensation Claim.
When prompted, click "Verify with ID.me" to create an ID.me account or use your existing account. Existing ID.me account holders are quickly redirected back to the UC application after logging into their ID.me account. Do NOT create a new ID.me account with different information if you already have a previously created ID.me account. If you have forgotten your ID.me login information, use the "forgot password" option on the sign-in page.
