You’re being pulled in many directions, responsible for managing benefits for a large population of recipients. You know that ineligible recipients could be costing your agency millions of dollars, but you don’t have the analytical tools that can help you pinpoint benefit abusers. You don’t know the extent of overpayment because you lack a means to track it.
Your agency lacks the people, time, and data access to determine which individuals are fraudulently receiving benefits. With data access limited to your state’s Department of Corrections database, you can’t search other states’ incarceration databases to locate individuals who may be fraudulently receiving benefits.
Your agency’s integrity is being compromised and overpayment to ineligible recipients is a serious problem.
With near real-time access to 80% of the nation’s incarceration data, you and your staff can more efficiently locate ineligible recipients across the U.S. With our Incarceration Intelligence™ solution, you’re able to weed out benefit abusers without additional staff needed to conduct searches.
You can now automatically monitor specific populations you select, ranging from hard-to-locate non-custodial parents to unemployment insurance claimants and Medicaid beneficiaries. With staff time freed up from manually searching multiples data sources, they can refocus their energies on helping eligible recipients.
Your agency is working more productively, significantly reducing overpayments, and enhancing the integrity of your program.
Incarcerated individuals are not eligible for most government benefits. The TotalVerify™ data hub from Equifax helps you check for an applicant’s current incarceration status and receive alerts when any of your population may be booked into jail or has served for a certain length of stay.
