Benefit fraud investigation

About benefit fraud

Benefit fraud costs you, the taxpayer, millions of pounds every year. Midlothian Council wants everyone who is entitled to claim Council Tax Reduction and Housing Benefit to apply for them, but to stop those who steal from the system, leaving less for people who need benefits to live.

If you know of any Council Tax Reduction or Housing Benefit cheats please contact our Investigation section in confidence.
