Social Security and OIG Announce Additional Anti-Fraud Units

Last Updated: October 2, 2020

At Social Security, we are committed to detecting and preventing fraud. Earlier this week, we and our Office of the Inspector General (OIG) announced that four new Cooperative Disability Investigations (CDI) Units opened across the country. CDI Units identify, investigate, and prevent Social Security disability fraud, and are a successful part of the agency’s anti-fraud initiative.  Four new statewide offices recently opened across the country, in Cheyenne, Wyoming; Las Vegas, Nevada; Manchester, New Hampshire; and Omaha, Nebraska.

The CDI Program helps ensure the integrity of Federal disability programs by resolving questions of potential fraud before benefits are ever paid.  The innovative initiative continues to be successful by bringing together personnel from Social Security, our OIG, State Disability Determination Services, and local law enforcement agencies to investigate and analyze suspicious or questionable Social Security disability claims.  CDI Unit efforts assist disability examiners in making informed decisions, ensure payment accuracy, and generate significant taxpayer savings for both Federal and State programs.

The CDI Program consists of 49 units covering 44 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. We have opened many units in the last few years as they work together to provide CDI coverage for all 50 states by 2022. Since 1997, the CDIs’ efforts have contributed to $4 billion in projected savings to our programs and $3 billion in projected savings to other Federal and State programs.

Id’s stolen identities of me as a widow and by lying about residence and even marriage… I collected bank records and records from social security in 4 Maryland offices and got one confession from one man who robbed my sons of 990 a month yet no one in ssa has paid me the more than 350 k due to me from payment fraud proven… And oig must not do anything nor did the FBI… But bank records and accounting ledgers from SSA MARYLAND PROVED MY ALLEGATIONS TRUE FOR 20 YEARS NOW…. DOES ANYONE EVEN CARE OR BOTHER TO RESEARCH ORIGINAL AWARDS OR SEE MISSING PAYMENTS WHICH WENT FROM 1200 EACH MINOR KID TO ONLY 726.00 AND FOR ME 213.00 MONTHLY WHEN MY REAL SWARD WAS 1255.00 MONTHLY?? FRAUD IS FRAUD… THEFT IS THEFT… AND SWITCHING RECORDS AND ALTERING DECEASED RECORD TO HIDE HIS HIGH BASIC WAS A CRIME BY THE 4 EMPLOYEES INSIDE SSA AND ALL REPORTS MADE BY ATTORNEYS WHO CONFORMED FRAUD THEFT WAS IGNORED BY PENNSYLVANIA SSA OFFICES… I HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO PUT 7 PEOPLE IN FEDERAL PRISON… WHY HAS SSA DONE THIS TO ME?? WHY WOULD SSA EMPLOYEES LAUGH AND THREATENED ME AT MY HOME TO SHUT UP AND NOT SHOW THE EVIDENCE TO OTHER SSA EMPLOYEES OR THEY ROBB ME AND MY KIDS MORE… OBVIOUSLY THE CRIMINALS INSIDE OF SSA GOT AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES BUT SO DID 3 CITIZENS PER 5 BANKS WHO GAVE ME THEIR RECORDS AND COPIES OF FAKE PHOTO IDS…I WANT THE MONEY OWED TO ME BUT CHIEF COUNSEL TO SSA IN MARYLAND TOLD ME… YES YOU WERE RIGHT BUT IT CAN TAKE 30 TO 40 YEARS TO RECOVER SSA STOLEN AND UNPAID MONEY….

    Someone to whom I left a set of keys because I was out of the country changed a key of my door and was entering my apartment and doing things to make me crazy. Don’t trust anyone.

    All things considered, I needed to think about your theme, yet in the wake of perusing your substance I was unable to get any legitimate thought for my hunt. You need to add the substance in significantly more spellbinding way. All the guidance with respect to the marriage capacities ought to be given in a bit by bit wayhttps://www.divineleather.com/product-category/vests/

      Somebody to whom I avoided a bunch of keys since I was with regards to the nation changed a key of my entryway and was entering my condo and getting things done to make me insane. Try not to confide in anybody.

    By then they express a warrant has been given for you and you will be caught uncommonly soon that it was inevitible. It’s then that they just hung up on me. it discovered me resting I got genuinely upset.

    Social Security is a social protection program. The United States Social Security program gives advantages to retirement, inability, and passing.https://la-grazia.com/moving-walk-products/

    I’m not really sure this comment is being made to the proper platform, but will comment anyway. I recently read the punishment and restitution for a bank manager who used his position of trust to steal 1.2 million in SSA and VA payments made to two accounts in his bank. The government has taken the BMW he purchased with a cashier’s check, but he continues to drive around a truck with personalized plates he purchased for $45K and live in the house that he also purchased which has over 100K in equity. Shouldn’t he have to sell these things and use the money to pay towards the 1.2 million dollars in restitution??? He will serve 30 months on our tax dollars, get out and get to live in his house and drive around his brand new truck. He most likely has most of that money stored in a safe in that house he doesn’t have to give up. Yet, there are law abiding citizens living in poverty all around our city! This makes no sense to me!
