Speaking at the launch of the new strategy, Doherty expressed hope that Irish taxpayers would be reassured that the welfare system is robust and effective, and that the strategy would help those who genuinely need the Department’s support.

“I recognise that the vast majority of our customers are genuine and that there are no issues in relation to their claims, but in order to ensure that we continue to target all our available resources to those who need them most, it is essential that we combat social welfare fraud and error,” she said.

The previous strategy, in place from 2014 to 2018, saw more than €2.5 billion saved, which would have been paid by the Department if control measures had not been implemented. The minister added that the Department would remain alert to new and emerging forms of fraud, and that its approach to tackling fraud would be flexible in how it is structured
