  1. Same for me- they wanted me to claim for a week they thought they might have missed -asked fro my SS and decided not to bother with it

  2. I received the same. Even though the info is accurate, it seems a scam to me. I believe the NY Labor will contact us through the Inbox in our NY ID account.

    1. It’s real and i Know because after I claimed all those weeks they asked for us to fill out – I did and in 2 days I got all my money that they owe me. That’s how I knew they are legit.

  3. Same for me- they wanted me to claim for a week they thought they might have missed -asked fro my SS and decided not to bother with it

  4. Received the same email asking to claim for a week that they missed….also asked for SS and that made me question if the email was legit.

  5. the person enter their social security number on a random email like this is either:
    greedy nor stupid.
    here is an idea…. check your ny.gov account for messages.
    and they don’t need your full ss#. how many times does your credit card company ask for your full ss#?
    besides that sign form should already have your ss# and name.
    even giving them my last 4 digits makes me unease!
    but you can take your chances!

    1. i might be wrong about this. but please do becareful sending with ss#.
      i update what i found on other post.

    ok. i could be wrong.
    i figure a way to tell if you are getting real email from ny.gov or fake.
    login your ny.gov account and check which week you didn’t claim.
    then look at the date in the docusign week.
    if it is for the week that was missing from your ny.gov claim week.
    then i would say it’s 99% real.
    coz scammer wouldn’t know which week you didn’t claim.

    hope that helps. coz i’m googling and searching and cross referencing bunch of information.

  7. How do you know it is real? I’ve tried to find somewhere on the website to ask the question but no luck

  8. I received the same. Even though the info is accurate, it seems a scam to me. I believe the NY Labor will contact us through the Inbox in our NY ID account. Sounds right. Why would they redirect you to another site, or company. I deleted the email.

  9. after searching and reading over night.
    here is the info we probably missed in our inbox from dol.
    https://www.labor.ny.gov/pressreleases/2020/may-06-2020.shtm
    middle of their page says:
    “The new, streamlined system will allow New Yorkers to submit backdated certifications online, via a secure form that can be emailed directly to those with missing certifications. The DOL will begin emailing these forms next week and will continue to identify and reach out to individuals with missing weekly certifications to ensure they get their money – including via emails, phone calls, and physical letters based on the contact information provided.”

    i just did fill the info out and submitted. after submission, it sent you back to dol site.
    but I still suggest look at your missing week and compare with the week in the email.
    be safe all…

  10. It is legit. I took the risk I signed it and fill in the SSN.The minute I sent it I got a confirmation in the mail box. I am relieved that it was not a scam.

  11. As I mentioned yesterday, I took the courage to enter the full SSN# and today the payment is reflecting, not deposited yet, but approved.

  12. yo recibí el mismo correo y me atreví a mandar mi número de social quiero que me digan porfavor si hice lo correcto o no

  13. It’s legit . Go to DOL website and check the DocuSign FAQs. They have every answer. I hope this helps

  14. The emails are legit go to dol website and it gives you details of what to do. If you are missing weeks they will reimburse you..so just go to dol..department of labor website and all the details are there so don’t worry the information they text me was 100% accurate.

  15. It’s legit. I read this page on the DOL site https://dol.ny.gov/unemployment/docusign-faqs and it explains that backert is legit.
    I filled it out and sent in the info and got a reply email from the DOL right away. I’ve been calling for weeks for this so I’m relieved that they finally contacted me. I wishr they did post it tom my prifile page on the DOL this is not the best way to work.

  16. I had the same concerns but it’s legit. If you go to the DOL Twitter account you’ll see them posting on this and bragging on their partnership with Docusign.
