Report Fraud

Overview

Audit and Recovery Management Services (ARMS) identifies, investigates and refers for criminal prosecution or civil litigation acts of fraud or error that cause an overpayment of benefits in welfare programs administered by Delaware Health and Social Services. ARMS is also responsible for the accounting and collection of all debts owed to the state as a result of an overpayment of benefits in a public welfare program administered by DHSS.

Guidelines for Reporting Fraud

In order to ensure that only eligible individuals receive the correct level of benefits, we need your assistance by reporting persons who you think are committing welfare fraud in the following DHSS programs:

  • TANF (cash assistance)

    6. Your Zip Code
    7. E-mail address
    (Persons reporting welfare fraud can choose to remain anonymous!)
  2. Type of program:
    1. TANF
    2. Food Stamps
    3. Child Care
