People commit benefit fraud by claiming benefits they know they are not entitled to.
Below are the most common examples of fraud:
- Not declaring any/all paid work
- Claiming as a single person but really living with a partner
- Claiming from an address that they do not live at
- Not declaring their full income, savings, investments or capital
Arun doesn’t handle fraud investigations– this is done by the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP).
You should report any suspicion of fraud to the DWP here.
You can also report benefit fraud by telephone or post.
