About Us

Welcome to the

New York Welfare Fraud Investigator's Association Website

Whether you are a member of NYWFIA, involved in the welfare fraud field, or merely surfing the web, this site should provide a lot of information about our organization.

This site gives contact information and details for our Executive Board and Regional Representatives, as well as our association bylaws. It gives details of our yearly events; our June Training Seminar, and our Fall Regional Trainings. As you can see, it now allows you the chance to sign up and pay for our annual training seminar, allows you to pick meal choices, links you to the hotel reservations system, and facilitates updating your member information or paying for yearly membership, as well as paying for merchandise at our events. Our past newsletters are published here, as well as a Blog that is used to share notable information about what the local districts or other state agencies are doing.

Our organization’s mission is to prevent, detect and prosecute welfare fraud in New York State through standardizing investigations, training investigators , and increasing the communication between the State and Local Districts.

NYWFIA is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit professional association. We are also recognized by NYS as an official trainer in the field of welfare fraud detection, investigation, and prevention.

The key to our organization’s success is the collaboration it allows between all of us, as we as a group are smarter than any one of us is individually- though some of you are exceedingly smart.

Your thoughts are important to us. If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact any board member or regional representative, or me, directly.
