National Fraud Initiative

The Cabinet Office is responsible for the National Fraud Initiative (NFI).

The NFI is a data matching exercise. It compares information held by certain public sector and private sector organisations. This helps to identify fraudulent claims, errors, underpayments and overpayments. For example, data matching shows a person listed as deceased who is still in receipt of a pension. A match does not always mean fraud has occurred. Organisations must carry out investigations to establish the situation.

Kent Pension Fund must take part in the NFI.  We must provide details of our pensioners to the Cabinet Office.

The use of the data is carried out with the Cabinet Office's statutory authority. It does not need the consent of individuals concerned. The data is used in compliance with data protection and human rights legislation.
