BENEFIT PAYMENT CONTROL UNIT (BPCU)

The Benefit Payment Control Unit (BPCU) prevents, detects, and recovers overpaid unemployment benefits. These overpayments may be caused by any number of reasons and are generally categorized as fraud or non-fraud. When someone knowingly reports false or incomplete information to receive unemployment benefits that they are not eligible for, this is fraud.  

BPCU is governed by Section 31-273 of the Connecticut General Statutes and Sections 31-273-1 to 31-273-9 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies.
