The National Fraud Initiative report, states that there was £39 million of fraudulently or wrongly received single person discounts in England alone, in 2014. Taken as an average across all 353 English Authorities, this equates to around £110,000 worth of discounts per Council which may have be fraudulently or incorrectly claimed.
VISION’s Single Person Discount Fraud review sends the latest list of SPD claimants to Equifax where the list is processed using the latest data matching and analysis tools to highlight high risk instances where there are undisclosed occupants living at a property. This data is then accessible and available to report on in VISION and can be shared with the relevant teams to tackle fraud, update Council records and maximise revenues.
VISION’s SPD Fraud Review service can also be used with and works alongside our ‘FUSION’ product.
