Welfare fraud and abuse cost taxpayers billions and rob limited resources from the truly vulnerable. Under Stop The Scam, states use advanced technology to conduct regular eligibility reviews, ensuring limited resources are only directed to those who qualify. With simple reforms, taxpayers could save up to $19 billion annually, freeing up these dollars for the truly needy.
Anti-fraud initiatives that embrace data-matching technology have attracted bipartisan support in states like Illinois and Pennsylvania, and have resulted in hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in savings. The three-step solution ensures individuals applying for welfare benefits are who they say they are and eligible to receive benefits; tracks welfare recipients already enrolled in programs to ensure they are still eligible; and prosecutes welfare fraudsters to the full extent of the law to deter future scams and recover funds paid out to perpetrators.
