Report benefit fraud

Worthing Borough Council is keen to take action against people who fraudulently claim Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Benefit. You could help!

If you have information that someone is claiming benefits when they shouldn’t be, you can report your suspicions online and we will investigate the claim in question.

Your information can remain anonymous but obviously we prefer your name and contact details in case we need to get back to you and to inform you of the result/outcome of the investigation. 

The more information you can supply the better, and the following can be very helpful to start any investigation:

  • The names of suspected partners
  • Car registration numbers
  • Places and times of work

On completion of an investigation any relevant evidence obtained can be submitted to the Council's Legal Team for consideration of sanction action and which can include prosecution.
