Puerto Rico: 68 arrested on SS disability fraud
The identity of those arrested couldn’t be learned immediately. One person familiar with the arrests said it included two psychiatrists, one physiatrist, a secretary and a person who works to help people win disability benefits. The person said the probe centers on alleged abuse of the federal program over several years that could have led scores of people obtain benefits who shouldn’t have qualified.
I find puzzling this statement,
Federal officials will face a thorny issue as part of the case—what to do with the benefits of those who might have improperly secured benefits. It could decide to review those cases, terminate the benefits or continue paying them.
How about termination and restitution?
