JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The U.S. Department of Labor has given the state of Mississippi $2.5 million to prevent and detect improper unemployment insurance benefits.

U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., says the program will help the state better track payments and update computer systems.

Thompson says Mississippi also will share in $90 million the Labor Department is making available to a consortium of states to design and implement unemployment insurance tax and benefit systems and implement tools to prevent, detect or collect and recover improper payments.

Thompson says under the terms of the grant, all states in the consortium are to share in what is developed.
