How do I report suspected benefit fraud?

How do I report suspected benefit fraud?

If you have any concerns that relate to a fraudulently obtained benefit or a council service that is being abused, you can call the national dedicated fraud hotline number 0800 854 440 or report it to the government online.

Examples of benefit fraud

  • Working but not declaring this when claiming benefit
  • Claiming as a single person but actually living with a partner
  • Claiming from an address but not living there
  • Not telling us the full amount of income, savings or capital when claiming benefit
  • Claiming housing benefit or Council Tax reduction when, for any reason, there is no right to claim

All calls to the fraud hotline are treated in confidence and the online referral form is anonymous. The more information you give us, the more likely the investigation will result in a positive outcome.
