Public Assistance Fraud

Welcome to the Department's site specifically dedicated to reporting
suspected fraudulent receipt of public assistance benefits.

We encourage you to report suspected fraud. Whether it's a member of your family, a neighbor, friend or someone you don't know. Public assistance fraud is not a victim-less crime. Real people, real families are hurt when public benefits are provided to unqualified individuals who use fraudulent information or references.

You may be eligible for a reward for providing information relating to public assistance fraud.
