Welfare Fraud Prevention

Fraud Prevention

The Investigation, Revenue and Enforcement Administration (IREA) is the investigative arm of the largest social services agency in the United States.  We pioneered a range of investigative practices and techniques that are a model in the field, and we are particularly proud of two major innovations:

  • the intense use of data matches and data analytics to support our investigative fieldwork, and
  • the use of front-end review and detection programs to prevent inappropriate or fraudulent enrollments in our social programs
