On September 18, Social Security’s National Anti-Fraud Committee hosted its inaugural National Anti-Fraud Conference. The committee, regional executives, and other attendees addressed the importance of fraud prevention and detection, as well as the many ongoing and new initiatives of Social Security and its Office of the Inspector General to prevent, detect, and investigate fraud.
As Acting Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin stated in congressional testimony, “The agency’s message to those who would defraud Social Security is clear: we will find you; we will prosecute you; we will seek the maximum punishment allowable under the law; and we will fight to restore the money you’ve stolen to the American people.”
We also depend on you and your constituents to help stop fraud. Please report fraud online at http://oig.ssa.gov/report or call the Social Security Fraud Hotline at 1-800-269-0271.
