Investigations

The Investigations Team is responsible for investigating allegations regarding potential fraud and abuse in the public assistance programs. They conduct an in-depth review of the case history to determine if the client has reported correctly in determining their eligibility. Analyze all information and compare it to eligibility rules, statutes, and any other policies. Once a determination has been made, investigations will provide a recommendation for the appropriate manner of resolution.

The Investigations Team also supports the Child Welfare Division and the Specialized Wraparound Team (SWT) through diligent searches in locating family members to assist and find appropriate placement for children/youth within their family of origin and assists at-risk adults to locate family resources.
