Fraud

Public assistance benefit fraud occurs when a person obtains or attempts to obtain any grant or payment of public assistance to which they are not entitled, or a larger amount of public assistance to which they are not entitled, by means of a false statement, failure to disclose information, impersonation or by other fraudulent device.

Any individual, who suspects fraud related to the Food Stamp Program (FSP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Medicaid, or any other benefit program administered by the Department of Human Services, can report the alleged fraud to the DHS Office of Program Review, Monitoring and Investigation by:

  • Completing and submitting the online Fraud Allegation form;
  • Emailing a description of the alleged fraud to [email protected];
  • Faxing a description of the alleged fraud to (202) 671-4409;

  • Mailing or delivering a description of the alleged fraud to the

    Office of Program Review, Monitoring and Investigation,
