Tell Us Once is a voluntary service administered by the Department for Work and Pensions. It is offered at the time of a verified birth and death by local authorities (LAs). It offers the citizen the option of sharing information with a range of public sector services at one time, avoiding the need for the citizen to separately inform multiple organisations.

Since April 2012 the service has been subject to routine management scrutiny and its performance is regularly reviewed against a range of measures. These include the level of take up by LAs and the blend of channels used by the citizen to access the service. These reveal that take-up and population coverage of the service continue to rise.
