SSA OIG Reports

  • SSA OIG Report: Work Activity Overpayments— 4/09 [PDF]
    • From SSA OIG Audit Report, FOLLOW-UP ON DISABLED TITLE II BENEFICIARIES WITH EARNINGS REPORTED ON THE MASTER EARNINGS FILE, April 2009, A-01-08-28075, pp. 7-8:

      Our current review estimates that approximately $3.1 billion in overpayments existed because of disabled beneficiaries’ work activity. Although SSA identified about 58 percent of these overpayments, we estimate the remaining 42 percent—approximately $1.3 billion—went undetected by the Agency. In addition, we estimate SSA will continue to incorrectly pay about $382 million over the next 12 months to disabled beneficiaries no longer entitled to benefits if the Agency does not act.

      We recognize SSA’s efforts to improve the work-related CDR process. In addition, we acknowledge the Agency’s limited resources with which to perform this workload. However, we believe SSA may achieve greater savings in the long-term if it could provide the resources to perform more work-related CDRs.
