Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) fraud is usually a crime by individuals rather than organized rings.

Typically, it’s someone who lies about their identity, household income, address or number of children who live in the house. Or it’s someone submitting a claim for a fictitious child or collecting benefits from more than one state. LexisNexis ® Risk Solutions offers identity-driven solutions that successfully defend against TANF fraud.
