Benefit Fraud

Dudley Council takes benefit fraud very seriously. Although the vast majority of people who claim benefits are honest, those who steal benefits are picking the pockets of law-abiding residents.

Latest figures from the Department for Work and Pensions show that benefit fraudsters stole an estimated £900 million from public funds nationally, that's why we are determined to catch them.

The council is also responsible for dealing with many other types of fraud, including abuse of disabled parking blue badges and housing tenancies, interference with procurement processes and misuse or theft of council resources/property.

You can assist the council by reporting fraud and all concerns shared with us will be treated in the strictest confidence.
