Safeguarding COVID-19 social benefit programmes from fraud and error

Through social benefit programmes (SBP), governments protect individuals and families from economic and social risks, and provide a safety net for households and businesses.

This note considers how governments can safeguard SBPs from fraud and error in both the short and long term to ensure that entitlements are reaching beneficiaries as the effects of the COVID-19 crisis continue to be felt.
