United Council on Welfare Fraud
What is it and Why should I join?
The United Council on Welfare Fraud (UCOWF) is an organization of investigators, administrators, prosecutors, eligibility workers, and claims collectors from local, state, and federal agencies from the United States and Canada who have combined their efforts to fight fraud, waste, and abuse in the social service programs. The focus of UCOWF is the detection, elimination and prosecution of those who fraudulently obtain or attempt to obtain government benefits.
Membership is available to anyone who is directly involved in or responsible for the prevention, detection, elimination and prosecution of welfare fraud or the identification and recovery of benefit payments made as a result of fraud or an intentional program violation.
