National Fraud Initiative

In order to prevent and detect fraud, we may share information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds. We participate in the National Fraud Initiative (NFI) run by the Northern Ireland Audit Office, which has statutory powers to conduct data matching exercises.  As part of this initiative, we provide details of pensioners and deferred members so that the information can be compared to that held by other public bodies. This will ensure, for example, that a pension is not being paid to someone who has died or is no longer entitled.  For further information about our participation in the National Fraud Initiative, please refer to the NFI Privacy Notice using the link below:
