Report benefit fraud

Benefit fraud is a criminal offence.

It is benefit fraud when:

  • People who are working but do not declare this when they claim benefit
  • People who claim as a single person but actually live with a partner
  • People who claim from an address but do not live there
  • People who do not tell us the full amount of income, savings or capital when they claim benefit
  • People who for any reason do not have any right to claim benefit

You can report suspected benefit fraud online, by freephone or by post.
