Reporting benefit fraud

Most benefit claimants are honest, but we have a responsibility to deal with those who are not.

We want to ensure Housing Benefit and Council Tax support are awarded to the people that genuinely need financial assistance.

If you suspect that someone is committing Housing Benefit fraud or Council Tax support fraud you can report it.

You can report Housing Benefit fraud on the GOV.UK website or call the National Benefit Fraud Hotline on 0800 854 440.

You can report Council Tax support fraud to us using our online contact form.
