    Answered . Hiding income would likely be fraud, and it may well affect his SS benefits too since he is not reporting work activity.

    Answered . Simply put, welfare fraud is when you lie to get welfare benefits. You can always report it to the agency who provides him the benefit but you must also consider how this might adversely affect your child and his relationship with his father.

    Answered . Not only does it sound like welfare fraud, it clearly would be tax fraud. there is no such thing as under the table.
