Social Security and OIG Establish New Anti-Fraud Units

Social Security has zero tolerance for fraud; we are committed to detecting and preventing it. Our agency is diligent and proactive when it comes to protecting the information entrusted to us.

Since 1997, Social Security’s Office of the Inspector General has worked with other divisions within Social Security to establish the Cooperative Disability Investigations (CDI) Program. The CDI Program helps us identify, investigate, and prevent Social Security disability fraud before benefits are ever paid. CDI Units assist disability examiners in making informed decisions, ensure payment accuracy, and generate significant taxpayer savings, for both federal and state programs.

In 22 years, the program has grown to 46 units covering 40 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. We have opened several units in the last few years as we work together to provide CDI coverage to all 50 states by 2022.

This week, we are proud to announce the expansion of this successful anti-fraud initiative. Three new statewide offices recently in Bismarck, North Dakota; Boise, Idaho; and Helena, Montana. In addition, the Puerto Rico office has expanded its investigative scope to include cases in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Since 1997, the CDI Program has contributed $4 billion in projected savings to Social Security’s programs, and $3 billion in projected savings to other federal and state programs.

  1. I tried to contact SSI about calls we received from someone saying they were from SSI investigations and we were about to be charged with a crime and jailed. They called 3 straight days with the threat. I called SSI 2 times and just got voice mails and narratives. Never an option to talk to an actual person. The number that called us was 9093455728. It seems to me if you really want to attack this problem, make it easy to report.

    • I got the same call saying I could go to prison. The number that called is 512-688-9453. They even answer the phone as social security administrations.

          I have received 3 calls pre-recorded messages impersonating the SSA, that 1). There has been a compromise at SSA and no need to be alarmed, the SSA investigators are handling the breach at this time (today at 130 pm) PST, and legal matters will be dealt with later 2). Another call just received stating that, those involved are being sought now by our (SSA) investigators, and legal team 3). Have indicated that we (strange directed comment, since they would not know this personally for such calls) should proceed to for further details at this number, however the recording never has provided such details (no need to worry, I did not fall for that scam), as well for, not once did they announce “Who” had their SSA account breached by name, as the last two calls just occurred at 235 PST, and 245 PST…There has been too many dead give-ways on this bogus info..The messages never provided info for you to “Repeat” the msg’s, nor would the SSA repeatedly keep calling you, and finally as, I have picked up the receiver and just kept quite, and no recording ever had been activated, just disconnected…Cheers Mate…T…

      • Just received a call from 1-844-774-1597…stating my SS # was compromised and I needed to call. I did and they answered identifying they were from the SS Claims department….when I pushed for information, without giving any of my own, they hung up on me.

    • I got a call this morning. A recorded call saying that my social security number had been used in some type of fraud.
      I just hang up and block the callers telephone number.
      At they will have to call from a different number next time.😂😂😂

      • Hi
        I just had a call from SSA saying i was under suppishon for frade ! I do not know what they are saying but it is not me that has done all this .

        • ive gotten more than a dozen calls saying my number had been suspended and was under investigation, all since my wife qualified for ssd a month ago. info leak???

    • AMEN! Or have a database registry to report that doesn’t involve a person answering the phone. SO simple and the gov makes everything so difficult. Caller IDs are basically worthless and all different with robo-dialing. If they can’t do anything about it just say so in big print on the home page!

      • Oh, for Pete’s sake, get a grip! It’s not the government’s fault that there are horrible people out there like hackers, scammers, con artists, and swindlers. Why must everything be blamed on the “big bad government?” That’s just ridiculous and frankly, ignorant.

    • I two got a call saying my Social # was being frozen. The phone number is Soc Sec Admin 1-866-254-2611 3x in one day.

    • +1 (213) 471-2063
      This is the number on which I was threatened today. Doesn’t our government have a cyber unit? (Rhetorical question 😁.) I feel like no one is protecting senior Americans.

  2. I have been called and told that ” they were with the federal government and I have been found to have been involved in a federal social security scam and the police were on the way to my home to arrest me. I have had several different calls, one said he was a sergeant with the federal government police, and was coming to my home. I’m 71, these scare me, now I very seldom answer my phone. These calls were made from all over the united states.

  3. 800-772-1213, 781-394-9620 and 410-394-9620 have been calling every hour for 3 days saying they are from the social security office and my social has been used in a crime. I’ve tried to block the caller and they still come through

  4. I am living out of the US. and in this country besides that made you wait just to open an account for you, they take a big chunk of the check. Is that a legal thing to do? I wonder because other people has told me that the check get reduced a lot. To me I have not received one electronica to the bank, but by mail, and then I never get them, so is obviously they steel them.

  6. I have received same calls as are referenced by others
    with threats of discontinuing my benefits and instructing
    me to get in touch with them right away. I know this is
    from scam artists and don’t answer and it goes to voice mail. It generally is in two call succession and not from the same voice. It’s tiresome. Please investigate and
    get it stopped.

  7. I had a phone call from 1(210) 625-5297 This call came from San Antonio, TX September 18,2019. The message left was for me to call the number listed above.
    The message stated that I need to call them back right away or I would be charged with fraud. That the incident involve and accident that there was blood all over in the vehicle due to the death of a victim. That I would end up in jail and charge with fraud along with murder charges. These people claimed to be Social Security representatives being asked to identify the Killer by matching blood type to the social Security number to ID the victim. These people had all the information on me as to Name, DOB,Address, my Cell phone number. They demanded for me to give them my Social Security number. I told them if they work for Social Security Number and they are sitting in front of the computer than they can key in the information to get my Social Security number. Then the man turned around and threaten me if I do not give them my Social Security number. I told them that I will follow my instincts and call the FBI on them. Then he hung up. I kept calling the same number over and over again and again asking to speak to this person that I was transferred to. I believe his name was Jeremy. Well they got tired of me calling they just stop answering the phones.

  8. I keep getting phone calls from someone that I feel are trying to scam me!! They even left a mobile number for me to call. I keep telling myself not to call I hope I’m doing the right thing.

  9. My identity was stolen I would say about 4 years ago someone close to me allowed it to happen my life is ruined I don’t believe anything I get on my emails because I don’t know who to believe it’s hard to get somebody to listen to you finally finally things are getting heard it’s a relief it’s still a long way to go but I’m very hopeful

  10. We have received two phone calls stating they are from Social Security. One said they are stopping payment and the second stated someone is fraudulently using our social security. We did not respond to these calls and hung up. They used a different number each time they called. I didn ‘t know what to do but thought I should report it.

    • Hi Bruce. Yes, the acronym “OIG” stands for the Office of the Inspector General. The OIG is directly responsible for meeting the statutory mission of the Social Security Administration of promoting economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of Social Security programs and operations and to prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement in such programs and operations. We hope this helps.

  11. A propos de l’entretien pour ticket to work prévu le 9/25/2019 à 3:pm et qui a été raté, j’ai été présent au téléphone à l’heure convenue effectivement .Cependant je me sent coupable de l’annulation . c’est pour quoi je vous demande de m’excuser.

  12. Call from (512) 957-4446. Automated voice left message saying: “This call is from the Department of Social Security Administration … to inform you that we just suspend your Social Security Number because we found some suspicious activity, so if you want to know about this case, press one. “

  13. We have too many fraudsters receiving disability for a fake mental disorder. We need to bust crooked lawyers like Eric Conn. When you have a lawyer using the same psychiatrist/ psychologist for all of their client’s medical opinion and RFC, there might be a problem. We seen this in Puerto Rico and West Virginia.

    The best mental health fraudster are the ones claiming anxiety and agoraphobia. How does the agoraphobia fraudsters leave his house to shop for food and eat. I didn’t know you can turn off your fears at will. The fraudsters with anxiety will claim that they can’t be around people, but there are jobs that they work with olbject instead of people.

    The depression fraudsters will check themselves into the emergency rooms at a hospital. You know the hospital can’t release them unless they are able to manage themselves. They spend less than a week there and don’t go back for months, years, or never. This is not “persistent” major depression.

    The SSA doesn’t even check to see if it is a psychiatrist/psychologist or a PCP prescribing the antipsychotic medication. A PCP is not a specialist. I never heard of a PCP not referring a person with severe mental health problems to a specialist. If they are only see the PCP, then their mental health is manageable and not severe.

  14. Then remove the illegial non us citizens removed from LE Staff Manila Philippines SSA functions. Trumps executive order of 2017 demands only US citizen allowed on
    Government information computers. Why do these non US citizens have access to private information. Ever heard of the privacy act.

  15. Got 3 phone calls stating they were Social Security and my number was being used in Texas not the state I live..I did not respond as fear of scam

  16. How can we prevent the Government from stealing our tax money for all these frivolous investigations so that they do not have to legislalte?

  17. What can I do about someone keeping my SSI checks and giving them away to everyone except for me? My DHS worker told me to contact social security and file fraud

    • Hi Marquise. A representative payee is required to keep records of all payments received and how they are spent or saved. Usually, Social Security will send your Representative Payee a “Representative Payee Accounting Report” once a year. The payee can mail the paper form to us or they can submitted online.

      If you think a representative payee is misusing your benefits, tell Social Security right away. Please call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday to speak to one of our representatives, or, you can contact your local Social Security office. We will investigate all allegations of misuse, gather facts and evidence, and make a decision on whether the benefits have been misused. You will receive a letter from Social Security telling you what we found. If we find that the benefits have been misused, Social Security may name a new representative payee for you or send the benefits to you directly. We will then take action to recover the misused money. You may also want to read our publication titled “When A Representative Payee Manages Your Money,” for more information on this issue. We hope this helps.

  18. I have report to the OIG, at that time I had two (2) consecutive calls. When I hear the message I hang up. The most I have heard was that my social has be cancelled because of suspicious activity. Then it ask me to press 1. I immediately hung up. Now today I’ve gotten two more calls from two different numbers.
    numbers are supposedly out of California,
    (707)886-0055, (559)393-4731, (707)019-2993, (559)261-5739.

    And yes no one at SSA or OIG answers the phones. This can be disturbing to our seniors. Maybe if you answered the phones they wouldn’t get scared into calling these fools and giving them vital information. This is what the president and all these other politicians should be spending advertising money on. I suggest every senior that can vote call their state representatives and demand they spend this money on fixing all these scam problems or else you won’t vote for them. We waste too much money on the wrong things, Stop letting people scam our seniors and those vulnerable to these scare tactics. I calling my rep right now and writing a letter to him,

    • Hi, Donna. We are sorry to hear that you are having difficulty reaching someone by phone. We are experiencing higher than normal call volume. Keep in mind we do not usually make random calls. If anyone receives calls saying they are from Social Security, do not give out any personal information.

  19. Fraud prosecutions are generally bogus and presumed dangerous. As it is used in this article these anti-disability fraud units constitute discrimination against disability. The truth of the matter is that social security is pessimistically overestimated by an Actuary who is unable to calculate the OASDI tax rate, and most of all short funded, by the maximum taxable limit – the true fraud that must not be aggressively defended. SSA needs to say they don’t have the money right now to sustain 1% DI population grpwth, and this constitutes deprivation of relief benefits. By focusing the hapless term, ‘fraud’, on people arbitrarily applying for disability, because they are poorer than they would like to be, these anti-fraud units are a form of violent political corruption concealing other true ‘frauds’, errors, swindles, poverty traps, tax loopholes in the social security system, that actually require due diligence.

    The United Nations Summit was pleasant, if boycotted for opposition defiance disorder. The Report of the Secretary General on SDG Progress 2019 (Special Edition) is even better than 2008 Progress Report on the MDGs. Social security benefits for the people earning less than the international poverty line, written out of SDGs, is written in as, ‘only 40% of nations have income insurance.’ Young people around the world competed to present their climate change defects. The success of the Polar Code of January 1, 2017 to produce natural sea surface temperatures in the Arctic ocean, during the natural cold and snowy winter of 2018-2019, reported by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, but blanked out by NOAA, relapsed with the wildfires in the Amazon, Portugal, and Siberia, that warmed Europe above 40°C, in response to Department of Commerce v. New York et al (June 2019). WHO Essential Nutrition Actions: Mainstreaming Nutrition Through the Life-Course (2019) indicates that the UN may be too brittle boned to bear the burden of proof, due to offhand propaganda on pg. 103, encouraging protein to treat osteoporosis although excess protein eliminates calcium and the omission of a prescription for routine calcium supplementation for menopausal women, inhibits the formation of calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus into ‘apatite’, wanted to heal bones and tooth enamel. Brush teeth within ten minutes of eating sugar. It is time for adults to compete regarding the use of the term ‘carbon dioxide’ in a factual sentence under the Framework Convention on Climate Change to be judged by the International Court of Justice, (well-established on pg. 108 of Global Environment Outlook: Healthy Planet, Healthy People 2019) the UN Environment email doesn’t work, such as ‘Carbon dioxide levels indicate air pollution from fossil fuel emissions in nine out of ten cities.’ ‘Wildfires’ and ‘oceanic heating pumps’ require equal treatment. ‘In fire season, to prevent campfire smolder from turning into wildfire, burnouts must be extinguished with water and/or mineral soil.’ ‘Finders must keep self-combusting styrene railcars, used as oceanic heating pumps, extinguished every three months, with 15 parts per million of 4-tertiary-butyl-catechol (TBC), cable the railcars out of the ocean, to a warship or oil-tanker, to be quickly delivered to a refinery, for conversion to a stable hydrocarbon.’

    The Secretary General huffed he would like ‘to tax fossil fuels not employment’ in regards to Finance for Development. Whereas social security benefits are the only way the common law in the treaties comprising the International Bill of Rights provide to raise billions of people out of poverty, this disorderly opposition to solving Goal 1, places the depressed OECD DAC balance in the loony bin with carbon dioxide, Brexit and free camping for pedestrians as the way to live in harmony with nature; not to be explained until 2030. Essentially, the UN is testing the patience of HA by search for withheld answer, until 2030. The non-academic problem is, in the USA the rich and underinsured state employees need to be taxed the 12.4% OASDI tax, on all their income, now to end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030, by paying for an increase in my disability from $711 mo. (2019) to $2,000 mo. (2020) to fill one of two vacant Public Trustee positions, to sign the 2020 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of Federal OASI and DI Trust Funds, bearing my Message. The Democratic candidates are thinking about thinking it is up to them, to redefine taxable wealth. The President’s talk of peace and raising people out of poverty, at the UN Summit, glosses over his total incompetence in international relations and government. His Congress, challengers and champions, must redress his psychotic throwing away of current account balance wealth, to play the xenophobic rich robber baron, beginning with international assistance, undefended by Congress’s defective zero growth policy in CR 18, like other Cabinet agencies. Passing Book 5 Customs (CC) first thing FY 20 Congress would pay $1 billion arrears for UNRWA and UNESCO and 2.5% annual program level inflation from FY 16, 3% for international agricultural assistance, to avoid being charged for arrears under Art. 19 of the UN Charter. North Korea had a bad harvest!!! The Swiss Formula for Unilateral Tariff Reductions (2007) must be upgraded from algebra to calculus, 0.99 for developing and 0.97 for industrialized nations, annual tariff reduction (from 2016 where hyperinflationary). Before the 2020 Presidential elections, the Speaker of the House and Secretary of State are to be impeached ex. rel. for their compulsive whistleblowing pursuant to Garcetti v. Ceballos, No. 04-473 (2006). Her and the ex-CIA Secretary of State’s, torture by mind-altering substances and lack of subject matter jurisdiction, has sanctioned all the English-speaking houses of Parliament, in the world – stark, raving, mad http://www.title24uscode.org/september2019.html

  20. I think it’s great that Social Security is watching out for fraud. Retirees and those on disability need to pay attention to any effort by outsiders who are trying to defraud them. Recently I had a chance to interact with an agent informing her that someone was trying to cause problems for myself. Gave her the phone numbers of the person[s] attempting this action. Haven’t heard from them since.

  21. Someone call from the number813 489 5612they said they was from social security i was going to be addressted i didnot call back

  22. I got the call from someone claiming to be from social security and that my ssn# had been compromised and that there was a warrant out for my arrest. Of course the “officer” had an Indian accent so there was the big red flag right there. I spoke to him with my very limited knowledge of Korean and then he hung up The number he called from or the number they spoofed was in Texas
    (512) 424-9833 I tried to call back to play with them but thee number was not accepting incoming calls. They are so stupid

  23. I recently tried to report what I suspected to be an attempted scam call. After finding the phone number the call was answered with an opening saying that SSA was
    aware of scam calls and gave me a new number to report such scams to. I called an listened to ALL of the different options on the telephone tree greetings and never learned of a place to report my scam call. I will not waste my time if (when) I get another call.

  24. I became disabled in 2003. I had been married a yr. My husband did not work,soon after the marriage,as he hurt his back badly, and hawas in process of applying for disability .through an attorney. He had worked as plant supervisor for many yrz. I to,had to apply for disability shortly after. I starting receiving SSA retirement survivors and disability insurance in Jan of 2003, which monthly check was only a few dollars over $600 a month. (I left my husband,as was alot of issues) divorce finalized in 205. We weren’t married very ling,and no children involved.
    MY question is ; Why would I be given retirement survivors and disability insurance ,for $600 a month, when the last statement I ever received in mail from social security stated that if I was to become disabled, I would receive 1″000 and some odd $ a month. (Was not married at that time either) I am confused as to why I was not given SSDI, with correct amt. I have tried to get it corrected,but social security didn’t, I guess, understand what I was trying to say,or ask. Now I am sick with my liver,and a broken neck, 7 1/2 screw,hangman break,,fractured skull,that won’t heal. Traumatic brain injury, from accident in 2005. I WAS TOTALLY CLUELESS UP TILL end of 2009,did not know I existed,and specialist told me that ppl with hemorghing in brain and place where head was fractured at high impact, NEVER know they are alive, but remain clueless
    I GUESS A LONG STORY SHORT,HOW DO I GET MY social security corrected, so I receive the
    type and amt I should be receiving.? I have a long ways to go yet,to be4 I can get back in the work force, with the impact the injurys have left ,and now sick with the liver again,after it was in remission for 19 yrs. Appreciate any help u have
    thanks God bless you

  25. I received a call from a number purporting to be from Social Security office. The number was 1-888-778-1283. Even though I knew it was probably a fraudulent call I pressed 1 to hear their spiel. Wound up talking to someone who had an Eastern European accent, claimed to be based in Baltimore and was incredibly insulting. Not like Federal officials I have dealt with in the past. I told him he was a fraud, he accused me of being a fraud and I hung up. I hope SSN nails these people.

  26. I have received that same call at least 12 times today. I haven’t answered it. I just let it go to voicemail
    These robocalls are not only fraudulent, they probably scare less logical older folks into calling them.
    They are very annoying to boot!!

He said to go to the SS office and give them the phone and I will talk to them. I said that would take a long time and they will be closed. he said, no they won’t, I hung up. The numbed is 1-972-430-5523
