Examples of fraud in DCF programs are:

  • The individual is fraudulently or improperly using a MyWIChildCare EBT Card.
  • The individual is not reporting employment or additional income. 
  • The individual is receiving assistance for a child that does not live with them, is not reporting a parent of the child living in the home, or is not accurately reporting the correct number of persons living in the household. 
  • The individual is not reporting their address information correctly. 
  • A DCF employee or an agency providing DCF services is committing a crime, misconduct, or mismanagement.

If you suspect someone is committing any of these or any other type of fraud, or otherwise misusing DCF resources -- report it.
