The Government has estimated that Benefit Fraud costs the country approximately £80 per household in Britain each year with every case of Benefit Fraud being at a cost to each and every one of us. Mendip has approximately 48,000 households. That means that in our area, over £3.8 million is potentially lost to benefit fraud.

Fraud has an impact on the amount of Council Tax and Income Tax you pay and the amount of resources available to the community.
