A fraud report is when information about a person's circumstances is sent to Udbetaling Danmark because the information can have an impact on the benefit or benefits the reported person receives from Udbetaling Danmark.
If Udbetaling Danmark receives a claim about you that can affect your benefits, you will receive a letter stating that you have been reported. Udbetaling Danmark will enclose the claim in the letter and advise you of any additional information they need from you.
Udbetaling Danmark will then check if you are still eligible to receive benefits from Udbetaling Danmark. This is done by comparing the information that you have provided with the information in the registries they already have access to.
You can provide information yourself
You will receive a letter when Udbetaling Danmark has verified your details. If the information you have provided and the information Udbetaling Danmark can see does not match, you will be given the opportunity to provide additional information. This may include your views on any differences. If you meet all the requirements to continue receiving benefits, you will receive a letter from Udbetaling Danmark advising that they won’t investigate the matter any further.
You will be notified as soon as possible when Udbetaling Danmark receives a claim about you. This is because you are entitled to know that Udbetaling Danmark has received information about you. You also have the right to know all the information received by Udbetaling Danmark, as well as the information they have on the person who reported you.
You are not suspected of anything illegal just because Udbetaling Danmark has received a claim about you, and you do not automatically lose the right to receive benefits.
