The IFB is funded by automobile and workers compensation insurers in Massachusetts. In addition to the investigative division, the IFB has legal, analytic and administrative divisions. Insurance Fraud Bureau personnel receive referrals and follow up with insurance companies' special investigation units and claims staffs; local, state and federal law enforcement and prosecution agencies in order to accomplish its mission to prevent, detect and deter suspected fraudulent insurance transactions in Massachusetts.
