Johnson Statement on Meeting with SSA IG on Disability Fraud
Washington, DC – Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Sam Johnson (R-TX) met with the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Inspector General (IG) Pat O’Carroll yesterday regarding his request for a full investigation of Social Security’s management and failure to prevent disability fraud conspiracies. The request followed the arrests of over 200 individuals – including retired policemen and firefighters – indicted as a result of ongoing Social Security Disability Insurance fraud investigations in Puerto Rico and New York. So far these schemes have cost taxpayers over $30 million.
