(UNDATED) - Unemployed residents risk losing their jobless benefits if they fail to show up for an in-person meeting required under a new rule taking effect next month.

In mid-October, the Department of Workforce Development will begin mailing notices to unemployed Hoosiers who have received at least 4-weeks worth of jobless benefits.

Those individuals will need to schedule an in-person meeting at a local WorkOne office, where they must show a photo ID and provide proof that they've been looking for work.

Workforce Development spokesman Joe Frank says the provision is aimed at cutting unemployment fraud and making sure people use the agency's resources to speed their return to work.

Unemployment recipients who repeatedly fail to show up for an in-person meeting will have their benefits cut off until they meet the provision.
