WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU’RE SUSPECTED OF BENEFIT FRAUD

You’ll be contacted by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the Service and Personnel and Veterans Agency or your local authority if you’re suspected of fraud.

Your benefit may be stopped while you’re investigated. You’ll get a letter telling you about this if it happens.

You may be visited by Fraud Investigation Officers (FIOs) or asked to attend an interview to talk about your claim – this is called an ‘interview under caution’.

FIOs will gather facts about your case and decide whether to take further action.
