It is great that these people were caught. I've known people who were gaming the system this way (although, they were not working on the side, I don't think)...claiming they are too 'mentally ill' to work. It's incredible they even managed to get on it to begin with.

I know of this one person (a transsexual) who is receiving SSI and Medicaid (that pays for his/her hormones) and once 'her' neighbors got whiff of this they formed a petition to report to Social Security. I don't know what became of the case, but if this person truly isn't disabled I hope they go to jail and are forced to pay that money back.
