Please beware of fraudulent recruiting activity where individuals pose as representatives, executives or recruiters of UnitedHealth Group and its affiliated companies including, but not exclusive to, UnitedHealthcare, Optum and OptumRx.
 
Fraudulent activity can include, but is not limited to:

  • Illegitimate Job Postings: scammers post illegitimate job postings online and/or create false webpages/websites. We highly recommend candidates validate and apply to our job postings on this site or reputable, well-known job boards.
  • False Emails:  scammers send fraudulent emails, which do not originate from any of UnitedHealth Group's email domains, to deceive individuals with false job opportunities and/or job offers. We do not use public email platforms such as those available on google, yahoo or hotmail to recruit or communicate with our talent. We recommend you contact us at the contact information listed below if you believe you have received a fraudulent email.
  • Fake Interviews or Job Offers: scammers leverage text messaging, Yahoo messenger, Google+ Hangouts, Google+ video or Facebook to conduct false interviews and/or false job offers. We advise candidates to not conduct interviews using these, or any similar, messaging platforms.
  • Requests for Fees or Software Downloads: scammers contact individuals requesting they start a hiring process by downloading software and/or requesting a fee. UnitedHealth Group will never request you download software, provide your bank account information, wire money or pay a fee of any sort to explore employment opportunities with our company. We recommend you do not respond to these requests, download software or pay any requested fees to participate in the recruitment process and/or to start a job.

If you wish to verify the legitimacy of any communication purporting to have been sent by or on behalf of UnitedHealth Group, please call 1-800-561-0861 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CT, Monday - Friday, for assistance. You also may inquire via email to lifesbestwork@uhg.com.
