25.3 Suspected Fraud or Imposition on the Commonwealth

Document

In this section

If, as a consequence of surveillance, a reasonable suspicion exists that a claimant may be defrauding the Commonwealth, e.g. surveillance evidence indicates a claimant is working in what seems to be a paid job and MRCC is making incapacity payments on the basis of an inability to work, and Compensation Review Forms state no income from employment, the MRCC Manager must forward details to the Director of the Policy and Procedures Section of MRCC National Office, Canberra.

No action should be taken in the management of the case that would make the claimant aware that he/she was under investigation.
