How do I report Benefit fraud?


Benefit Fraud can be reported:

  • in writing.
  • or by telephoning the Benefit Fraud hotline number (Contact details at the bottom of this page).

All information will be treated in confidence and can be given anonymously if wished.

Where a claimant has been found to have claimed benefit fraudulently the authority will take the appropriate action to recover the monies claimed fraudulently and to ensure that the claimant is penalised.

Please Note: Unfortunately, we are unable to give you feedback regarding the progress or result of individual Benefit Fraud investigations.
