Yes I agree the punishment should be the electric chair then another 30 days after that. I think here is part of the problem with S.S. in this country. I see ads on TV by some scam artist lawyers or crooks who ever they are. They say if you have been denied S.S. call us right away we will help you relsoved your claim. Those SOB,s could also use a liitle punishment aey.

The fraud is difficult to stop because they dont have enough agents or Field Reps to investgate or check. What should be annual reviews, dont occur but years later. Then to build up the stats, they review the obvious cases, like an amputee. This allows a fast review and looks good when they report to Congress.

The function of doing investigations should be outsourced to licensed investigators. Offer them a monetary per centage for proven cases, then you would see a dramatic drop of fraud cases.

I could go on, but let's say the system is broken and everyone just plays the game.

According to you, the SS debt is due to illegal receiving it for free!

There are multiple reasons for the SSA problems. A lot of the problems is the agency itself.
One example, employees are not allowed to contact the police should they interview a wanted criminal or an illegal with forged documents. Bin Laden could have walked into a SSA office and nothing the SSA employees could say or do. Unless they wanted to get fired. Then, you have the professional disability claims filers, I dont mean the lawyers. The GENERATIONS of families that know the system have the whole family on disability and not be disabled
The problem is nationwide.

One of the largest problems is that William { I did not have sex with that woman} Jefferson Clinton raped the Social Security lock box and balanced the budget with that money . Sorry laughing boy Clinton is a dumbocrap . Then a lot of laywers cheat and get money for people who have nothing wrong with them , The reason the laywers do this is to earn a lot off the top prior to indivuals getting their money . And yes illegals get more than their share , paid nothing in and receive payments .

The fixing of SSA has delayed for many years because it is the third rail of politics.

The you have the generational disabilities filers. They know the system better than the SSA employees. These people coach each other on what to say and how to complete the applications.

The SSA bosses, even at the lower levels, will adamantly deny there are problems or minimize them. Their positions are political and ONE bad comment about the system will ruin the career.

What they need is a total review of all the disability cases and get serious about prosecution. The current prosecutions system is based on a monetary amount and publicity. So they usually only go after the $20,000 and above fraud. Unless the claimnant happens to make one of the employees angry, then they will hold the client's feet to the fire. There will be a very strict application of rules.

Vet ..... It was Lyndon Johnson that took the SSI account and folded into the general fund .... It was Jimmy carter that made the money available to non contributors and as a result we have a variety of illegal aliens and euro slicks feeding on that money and when you add the home grown fraud you have what we have today...

? the function.

SSI is for anyone going into retirment at any age. Thier is no clause to that fund. You retire with less the sooner you retire that is all.

% of your check goes into a interest baring account.

% is added of a match from a interest baring account from the business owner

%1/4 is added by Governemnt officals in a interest baring account.

It never goes under.

You got brainwashed by putting some IGNORENT lead in administration again twits..... So who is running away with all that money?

No such thing as SSI fraud.

MALPRACTICE by a doctor and they have to take accountability not the civilian.

Their liability insurence will have to repay administration NOT THE civilians pocket plus civilian can sue for any unlawful experimentations and profile and the discrimination they got from public secter their after of conspiracy crimes that dismanteled esteem finance housing and repute..

You men put in stupid female counterparts in the office that had no knowledge of law, and now you complain when the system malfunctions when you need it working. But she was a nice person RIGHT IDIOT premiscuois unlawful twit that had no business working with human beings, should of been kept at home or working a assembly line if she was that dumb.

And if they fraudulanted a SSI claimant it is because MADISON WISC ordered the local doctors to NOT take confirmation tests at Hospitals or Dead Clinic, to go off symptoms alone. Not the civilan fault MALPRACTICE not fraud
