Fraud is on the rise.  There is evidence that fraud has permeated virtually every government-based benefit program at the state, local and federal level.  The federal government estimates that three to five percent of public assistance dollars are lost each year to fraud, and tax related identity fraud has grown 650% since 2008.  It’s time to put new systems, partnerships and initiatives in place to ensure that hard-earned tax payer dollars are protected and not lining the pockets of criminals.

Join Governing magazine for a live, interactive webinar as we discuss the future of identity-based fraud in the government, and how you can detect this abuse and help put a stop to it.  Attempting to recoup monies lost to fraud can cost the government millions of dollars, and at this event we will discuss best practices to prevent this from happening on the front-end of your processes.  At this event you will learn about:

  •     Successful programs in the state of Florida, New Jersey and Louisiana and what you can learn from them
  •     The use of technology to verify and authenticate individual’s identity and reduce ID Fraud
  •     Combating trends of identity-based fraud in government
  •     The benefits and savings achieved by using technology to combat ID Fraud
