Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force

The Document and Benefit Fraud Task Forces (DBFTF) target and dismantle the transnational criminal organizations and individuals that threaten U.S. national security and public safety – and address vulnerabilities that exist in the immigration system.

Through collaboration and partnership, the DBFTFs maximize resources, eliminate duplication of effort, promote the information sharing, and produce a strong law enforcement presence. DBFTFs safeguard against fraudulent activities related to documents and benefits in the United States.

Agencies participating in DBFTFs include U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Department of Labor Office of the Inspector General, Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, state Departments of Motor Vehicles, and numerous other federal, state and local agencies.
