Reporting fraud

When you report someone who may be committing benefit fraud, you are helping us protect your contributions to the Employment Insurance (EI) program and the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

Protecting your identity is another way you can help prevent fraud. If you know about someone who may be using a false identity or a false Social Insurance Number (SIN), let us know right away.

To report fraud:


  • 1-800-206-7218 (for allegations of fraud related to EI or a SIN)
  • 1-800-277-9914 (for allegations of fraud related to the CPP or OAS)


You have the right to remain anonymous. If you provide us with personal information, it is protected under the Privacy Act and the Access to Information Act.
