Front End Detection   

Front End Detection System (FEDS) -  This program is designed to prevent fraud at the point of intake before the dollar loss has occurred. All Safety Net Assistance (SNA) applicants and  other applicants with questionable information or discrepancies as noted by the examiner are referred immediately. The investigator then participates in the interview, which can lead to the application being denied or withdrawn. The success rate and cost-avoidance figures associated with the program have been phenomenal and remain a tremendous saving to the taxpayers.
