Washington family defrauds SSA of $350,000

For more than 30 years, a family of four residing in Washington has been defrauding the Social Security Administration. They have been falsely claiming Social Security disability benefits for injuries and handicaps that they do not truly have.

During the 30 years, the family illegally obtained $350,000 from the SSA, as well as the state of Washington. Their scheme involved filing for disability benefits under false Social Security numbers, claiming that someone in the family needed constant care and attention for their disabilities. The family, a mother, father, and two children, continued to work as normal employees throughout this time.

Once the children grew up, they began to obtain these disability checks as well. All four of the family members have pleaded guilty to Social Security disability fraud. They will be sentenced in June of this year.
