DSS, Fraud Investigation Unit
As the supervisor of the Fraud Investigations Unit, I protect and serve children by ensuring their family members are receiving the benefits they are entitled to.
By investigating the households and determining that all the benefits are correct, it ensures that children are getting the proper medical coverage and food that they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
There are many times when the situation has not been reported properly and once we talk to the family, they are actually entitled to more benefits. If a situation arises where the family is not entitled to receive benefits, the unit is able to refer them to partner agencies where they may be eligible for other services.
I do the work to ensure that the right services are being received by the right people!
