Social Security and OIG Announce Additional Anti-Fraud Units

October 2, 2020 • By

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.

    Social Security is a social protection program. The United States Social Security program gives advantages to retirement, inability, and passing.

    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!
