Reporting Welfare Fraud

Who do you report people to who are claiming welfare and working confidentially?

Firstly let me congratulate this listener for wanting to do something practical about welfare fraud.  Claiming social welfare and working confidentially and not declaring the income is a criminal offence and makes the benefit cheat liable also to civil proceedings for the repayment of the amounts. 

 

The Department of Social Welfare operate a confidential help line and if you phone (01) 704 3000 and ask for the Central Control Section you can speak in confidence to a welfare investigator.  They can also be contacted by email at central.control@welfare.ie or you can write to them at The Central Control Section, Shannon Lodge, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim.

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given. For a detailed professional opinion please consult a qualified legal advisor and for further details read our disclaimer on the Home Page.
