Feds Paid $1 Billion in Social Security Benefits to Individuals Without a SSN

Image result for social security fraudThe Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit.

The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves.

The audit released Friday found thousands of cases where there was no SSN on file.

Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who "did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application."

“Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection,” the inspector general said.

The inspector general also found the agency paid $853.1 million in benefits since 2004 to individuals who had been terminated as representative payees by the agency.

The inspector general said the errors occurred because the agency did not keep paper applications supporting an individual’s case to receive benefits on behalf of another and did not update its system if their status was terminated.

Only six percent of representative payees had SSNs that were properly recorded, based on the audit’s sample of 100 beneficiaries.

Government benefits are also going to illegal aliens through the representative payee system. 17 percent of representative payees in the sample did not have an SSN recorded because they were undocumented noncitizens, the inspector general said.

" Government benefits are also going to illegal aliens through the representative payee system. 17 percent of representative payees in the sample did not have an SSN recorded because they were undocumented noncitizens, the inspector general said.

Illegal aliens without SSNs are allowed to receive benefits from the government when acting as representatives for their minor children. 

In response to the audit, the SSA said it switched to a new Electronic Representative Payee System last year, and transferring representative payee information “may have resulted in applications showing as terminated or not selected.”

The government defended the issuance of benefits to noncitizens and persons without an SSN.

“Representative payees play a significant role in many beneficiaries’ lives,” the SSA said. “We have approximately 5.7 million representative payees managing annual benefits for approximately 8 million beneficiaries. When appointing representative payees, we adhere to guidance in the Social Security Act (the Act).”

“Specific to this audit, the Act permits us to appoint, in certain circumstances, an undocumented alien, or applicant who resides outside the United States without a Social Security number (SSN) to serve as payee,” the agency said. “Specifically, the Act states we should verify a person’s SSN (or employer identification number) in our investigation of the payee applicant. However, the Act does not state that the applicant must have an SSN to serve as a payee.”

The “absence of an SSN is not a criterion preventing an individual from serving as payee,” the agency added. "

Twist the words to fit the crooks thinking.

As a US Citizen try applying for Social Security without a valid SSN... see how fast you become the target for criminal prosecution.

Another slush fund for the Dems.    Midnight flight of a billions $$$$... when it lands I am SURE the  Dems know right where it goes.

Unbelievably stupid.

This is the kind of thing that all the crooks got a piece of.  All the thieves in our

beloved capital have their hand in the cookie jar.

Obama probably stole a billion dollars cash from the taxpayers, just for himself,

untold amounts he gave to other nations!

Seems like free money Obama gives away to all the poor or illegals.  This department needs to cleaned out and all held accountable for ANY errors they make.

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL FIX THIS

''  GUARANTEED  ''

 

Taking the white man's money, simply put.  

It's globalism, the serpent seeds work, the one world order/government.

I have long thought it clear that many in our federal and state  "leadership" positions desire to reduce the USA to a third world country under the boot heel of the New World Order.  It's much easier to govern a slum filled with ignorant uneducated poor people dependent on their leaders than to govern a virtual super power with a bulk of well educated and affluent middle class citizens. 

To say these "leaders" are sociopaths is in my opinion a gross understatement.  Cultivating an underclass of illegals and lazy people gaming the system was a stroke of evil genius.  For decades the powers that be have been gaming the national election process pretending we were a two party system and then working to appoint corrupt high level officials into key positions of our government as their party basked in the limelight of "victory."  They are the head of the snake, the dependent class the body. 

The cesspool of corruption in our government; national, state and even local, particularly in the large cities, has been growing over generations.  These folks will prevail if true Americans do not rise up and become engaged in the political process effectively wresting the reins of government out of the hand of the corrupt and putting it back into the hands of "We the People."    More Americans than in the past seem to be aware of what is taking place.  Education and informed voting along with term limits is essential.  We must support President Trump in every way we can.  I'm guessing he is the first true American since President Reagan.

And, for those of us who believe in prayer...we need to pray daily for Mr. Trump's safety and his ability to actually carry out his promises to the American people.   I believe God will always honor human free will, if we want Him to be involved we need to tell Him so.  We also need to act like we care about God's biblical mandates for virtue.  I sincerely believe that Americans forgetting about God and His righteous commands regarding human behavior has put America into her current situation....  Our relative prosperity it would seem, has caused us as a people to become self-confident and lackadaisical regarding our character, and hence about the character of those we have elected to govern us.

Paul,

Well stated summary of these Globalists.  Yes President Trump has taken on all this corruption that is embedded in our institutions, which has taken a century to get to this point.  He is the only person with the courage and love of country that has stepped up.  I believe he realizes all this and is willing to take it on.  You see how ugly it is out there and only going to get worst before it gets better.  And that is if they don't kill him first, so if we lose President Trump say goodbye to America, I have waited over 3 decades (1991) for someone like President Trump and some even longer that have been fighting the fight. Sad to say but it is true.    

Sally

         STOP ALL WAIST AND OVER SPENDING !! { PEOPLE = COMPANIES = OTHER CONTRIES }  WE WILL HAVE PLENTY OF MONEY FOR MANY THINGS !!   WALL = HEALTH CARE = INFRASTRUCTURE  AND OTHER THINGS !!

From each according to their ability, too each according to their need.,, the communist credo.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
