Q How do people get away with Social Security disability fraud and how does this affect me?
AWe are constantly encouraged by the people who are caught and prosecuted for Massachusetts disability fraud. These people may fake a disabling condition or exaggerate an existing one. Others recover medically but keep receiving benefits. And some continue to receive benefits while working.
The costs of disability fraud may have a direct effect on you if you are applying for benefits. Because of the SSA backlog in case reviews, some say they are paying out up to $11 billion to people who no longer qualify or never did. Our advice to you is to report anyone you suspect of receiving benefits illegally.
