What Is Social Security Fraud?
When someone knowingly provides misleading information in order to obtain Social Security benefits, a fraud crime has occurred. Depending on the nature of the crime, if found guilty, the penalties can involve repayment of benefits, additional fines, restitution, and possible imprisonment. Generally speaking, the judge will determine the penalties based on the seriousness of the case at hand.
Some common situations that may lead to a criminal charge for Social Security fraud include:
- Hiding information or life events that will affect your benefits, such as being employed, in prison, or receiving worker’s compensation
- Failure to notify the Social Security Administration (SSA) that a recipient has died and continuing to cash checks made out to the deceased
- Misusing benefits while acting as a representative for the beneficiary
- Receiving benefits for a minor or dependent not under your care
- Buying and/or selling counterfeit Social Security cards
- Impersonating an SSA representative
- Bribing an SSA employee
- Making false claims
Dealing with a Social Security fraud case can be a challenge as every situation is unique and, therefore, requires a customized defense.

Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
