How Do I Report Social Security Fraud?

Social Security fraud affects the programs and operations of the Social Security Administration (SSA), and concerns all who have received, or who will receive Social Security benefits. What is Social Security fraud? How do you report it, and what do you report?

What Is Social Security Fraud?

Fraud takes place when a person receives social security benefits for which they have no right. The following are Social Security fraud examples: a person who receives benefits for a child that is not under their care; a person who lies about their employment status to receive disability benefits; a person who conceals the death of a beneficiary, assets or an overseas residency in order to receive supplemental security income. If you are aware of fraud, how do you report it?

How Do You Report Social Security Fraud?

The SSA has set up several ways to report fraud. A Fraud Reporting Form is available on the SSA website. The agency has a Fraud Hot line at 1-800-269-0271, available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM EST, or by TTY at 1-866-501-2101. You can also report the fraud by mail, or fax the information to 410-597-0118. But, exactly what do you report?

What Do You Include In Your Report?

Include as much information as you can on the person committing Social Security fraud. The report should include name, address, and social security number if available. If this is an employment concealment case, include employer’s name, employer’s address and phone number. Report where and when the fraud occurred, how it was committed, and who else besides yourself knows of the fraud.

    I want you to investigate an individual named Steven Brown. He has been collecting social security disability payments for YEARS and is able-bodied. In fact he owns a motorcycle and jeep. He lives with his girlfriend Kendra Palmer at 1317 Ripley Street, Cornell, WI 54732. They both do not work and own a home. They do not pay for the home and think they deserve it for free. They said the mortgage company lost their papers. They have 3 kids and he is abusive to her 2 oldest. IT’S PEOPLE LIKE THIS THAT NEED TO BE PENALIZED. WHY SHOULD I WORK DAILY IF THESE PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO? That’s why we need Governor Walker – to get rid of these lazy people who are ruining it for the innocent people who actually need assistance. Thank you.

    The mousepad is thick enough to allow for a comfortable place to place your wrists

    can still try and try to get the necessary parts.

The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors’ benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings, future benefits are based on the employees’ contributions.
    The Social Security Administration was established by a law currently codified at 42 U.S.C. 901. Its commissioner, Michael J. Astrue, was sworn in on February 12, 2007, for a six-year term.
