Benefits Fraud

The council employs a team of fraud investigators whose role is to detect and deter benefit fraud and to prevent fraud from entering the housing benefit and council tax support systems.

As well as acting upon suspicions of fraud referred to us by council staff and members of the public, our Investigation Officers use data matching information that can indicate when people have not told us about when they enter paid work, their savings or private pensions, etc.

Islington Council’s Benefit Investigation Officers have powers to obtain information about people they suspect are committing benefit fraud from employers, banks, building societies, utility companies and other organisations.
