The Details

What you need

Preventing fraud, waste and abuse is a top priority of the Department of Transitional Assistance to ensure that every SNAP and economic assistance dollar goes to individuals and families who truly need it. Anyone who intentionally provides false information to receive benefits for which they would otherwise be ineligible is potentially taking them away from eligible recipients.

If you suspect fraud, you do not need to tell us who you are to make a complaint. In your report, please provide us with as many details as possible about the fraud. We appreciate your help in attempting to reduce fraud.
