Data Matching


The LoCTA Data Matching service for Benefits is available to all subscribing Local Authorities.


On a fortnightly basis LoCTA searches through all subscribing Authorities’ databases to identify multiple open benefit claims across different Authorities.


When a duplicate claim is found the results are compiled into a report. Every Authority involved in the match receives the report via email which contains the relevant information.


The data matching report is a proactive method of identifying possible fraudulent claims across Authorities and is a powerful tool in the fight against benefit fraud.
