Risk Based Verification Policy

Cabinet approval is sought for a Risk Based Verification Policy to be adopted for the purpose of Housing Benefit administration. The adoption of such a policy will enable the service to allocate more resources to claims that present a greater risk of fraud and error. It will also reduce the cost of administration and improve performance, by reducing the number of days taken to process new claims and changes in circumstances.
