Benefit Fraud

Saving...

If you suspect someone of committing benefit fraud you can report it anonymously.

Most people who claim benefit are honest and make their claim with the best of intentions.

Unfortunately, not everyone is as honest.  There are some people who will;

  • try to claim a benefit they know they are not entitled to
  • claim more than they are due, or
  • continue to claim even when they know they are no longer eligible

You can report suspected Housing Benefit fraud in three ways:

By telephone:

Contact the National Benefit Fraud Hotline on 0800 854440.  Your call is free and confidential you do not have to give your name or address.  Lines are open Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.00pm.  If you have speech or hearing problems you can use a text phone service on 0800 328 0512.
