Benefit fraud is theft and increases the amount of tax everyone has to pay. The Government estimates that benefit fraud costs £2 billion every year, meaning less money for those who really need it.

It is important that people who are falsely claiming are reported to the fraud investigations team. The more information you give us, the more likely the investigation will result in a successful conclusion.
