Through a printing error, 597 people receiving unemployment benefits last week got direct-deposit information including Social Security numbers belonging to another person. We received a print job and were running it, and there was an equipment malfunction, Thompson said. In restarting the piece of equipment, a mistake was made and it started one page off. It was an error and our quality assurance didn't pick it up. Recipients received one page with their own information and another page with information belonging to a different person.
