    ... Government Paid $405,357 in Welfare to 30 Deceased People

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) paid 30 dead people $405,357, according to the Inspector General’s (IG) most current review of the agency. An IG Audit Report, released on Oct. 12, had the stated objective “to determine whether Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments should be terminated for recipients whose Medicare benefit records indicated they were deceased.” “In March 2012, we narrowed the records to 52 individuals whose SSI payments continued even though their Medicare records were terminated due to death,” the report stated. Of the 52 individuals, “30 were deceased, and SSI payments should have been terminated." “SSA overpaid these deceased individuals $405,357 in SSI payments for an average of 23 months,” the report said. On average, the deceased individuals were paid $13,511.90. - Elizabeth Harrington

    2,000 Dead People Got Food Stamps

    New York and Massachusetts are administering food stamps to 2,000 dead people, according to Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) catalog of government waste. The 2012 Waste Book, released earlier this week, documents $4.5 billion in waste in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. Among his findings, Coburn said that, “The USDA Inspector General found roughly 2,000 dead people are still receiving food stamps in New York and Massachusetts combined.” “Additionally, its investigation revealed 7,236 people in these states are receiving duplicate benefits, while 286 are on state lists that should exclude them from receiving food stamps,” the report said, amounting to $1.4 million in unnecessary payments each month, or $147.03 for each recipient, dead or alive. - Elizabeth Harrington
