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.

Reagan was right.

I would like to see that.........brick thing  ha ha

HERE'S A START

THey ALSO 'BORROW' from it.  If you were to check the records of Social Security, you would fine a ton of I.O.U.'s.  Not a single one has been made good since the beginning.

The Social Security system was a communist gimmick to take people's money, bank it, and then give it to third world immigrants.

The day I went to the Social Security office, after retiring, I was the ONLY white person in the room.  I heard other languages, I heard interpreters, the children were interpreting for their parents, who I suspect never put a dime in the system.  It opened my eyes many years ago.

Social Security sounds good, but the politicians have been using it for other causes.

Social Security taxes are an illusion... they are being used to finance our government instead of being held in a lock box... the IOU's are not secured and are subject to liquidation upon bankruptcy.  The 12.4% paid by all working Americans.  This is an unconstitutional direct tax ... Disguised as a government run insurance and retirement program. 

However, its promises are not underwritten by reserves held to guarantee such payments... like private insurers. In stead it is the worlds largest PONZI scheme and now that the numbers of new enrollees is in dramatic decline and the Baby Boomers are looking for payouts... the system is on the verge of collapse.

The government has borrowed from the social security trust... to finance its expenditures... there are only IOU's in the Social Security Trust Fund... If the government goes bankrupt or our currency become insolvent.... the IOU's in the Socials Security lock box will become worthless and any payments to social security recipients will be eaten up by hyper inflation or simply stop.

All of our taxes are direct, except sales tax, so they are all illegal plunder.

Absolutely TRUE!  So let's get them OUT!  

Take that same $1 billion out of the pension funds for Social Security Workers who let this happen.

That's a good idea start taking from all government workers.

Sally

Prosecute those receiving such benefits and as part of the penalty ... confiscate and sell all their assets, returning any funds to the Social Security Administration.  All... ALL... payments made where no social security number exists should be STOPPED IMMIDIATELY and a criminal investigation started.

Any government employee found negligent or culpable in a crime should be fired and prosecuted... hold the bureaucracy responsible for not doing their jobs.  Seize their retirement and any assets if they prove to be culpable.

this is Crazy stupid!

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
