Shelia Dorsett, North Carolina 2019-2020 UCOWF President

48th Annual United Council on Welfare Fraud Training Conference
Wichita, KS
September 2020

Welcome to the United Council on Welfare Fraud website. Our members are investigators, supervisors, program managers, and recovery specialist from across the USA and Canada. We work to protect the integrity of our public assistance programs.  The United Council on Welfare Fraud (UCOWF) supports us with training, technical assistance, collaboration, and support.

If you are also working to protect our public assistant programs, look around. Our annual membership fee of $35.00 (US) is very low when compared to other professional organizations. We offer a Certified Welfare Fraud Investigator (CWFI) program and a national registry of UCOWF members.

Did you ‘land’ on this site because you would like to report someone you think is committing fraud? Then you are at the right place. Click on the “Report Fraud” link, select the state, and let us know what you suspect. Read our “News” link to see the issues we care about. Our main goal is to ensure that only those who are truly eligible receive from our public assistance programs, and we need your assistance to protect those programs.

Regardless of why you came to this site, we’re glad you’re here!


Shelia Dorsett, President
