Course Description

We have all heard of government benefits fraud but did you ever wonder how it works?

How do these fraud schemes work and how much do they cost taxpayers?

Benefits fraud is committed when a person deliberately claims benefits, they are not entitled to. They might do this by providing false information or by not reporting a change in circumstance. Offenses fall under common law, the Fraud Act 2006, the Social Security Administration Act 1992, the Tax Credits Act 2002, and the Theft Act 1968.

Examples of benefits frauds include:

  • Providing incorrect information about a household’s income, savings, or capital.
  • Not notifying the authorities when someone moves in or moves out of the household.
  • Falsely declaring disability or unfitness for work.
  • Not reporting a change in address.
