Benefit fraud

Report benefit fraud

We want to make sure benefits go to the people who need them, so if you think anyone is abusing the system by claiming benefits that they aren't entitled to, please let us know.

Our Internal Audit and Anti-Fraud team has successfully prosecuted a number of fraudulent cases and is investigating many more.

It works with other teams in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, such as Benefits and Revenues, Council Tax and Housing Services, as well as the Metropolitan Police and other enforcement agencies.

How to report a fraud

To report a potential fraud, telephone the benefit fraud hotline. All reports are treated in the strictest of confidence.

Report benefit theft to the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP)
