Department of Social Protection officials reviewed some 982,000 individual claims for social welfare payments.

Welcoming the figures, Minister Burton said: "The level of savings achieved by the Department is well in excess of the target of €540 million set at the start of 2011 and it shows our commitment to tackling fraud and abuse of the social welfare system across our broad range of schemes."
