How do I report disability fraud?

First, what is disability fraud? According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, fraud is any act of intentional deception in order to receive an unlawful benefit. Examples of disability fraud may include making false statements on claims or concealing employment in order to continue receiving disability benefits.

If you suspect any sort of disability fraud, you can report it to the Social Security Administration (SSA) via Internet, phone, or mail. You do have the option to remain anonymous during the reporting process. However, keep in mind that this may limit the SSA's ability to investigate your allegations, since the office will not be able to follow up with you for additional information.

Reporting fraud, waste, or abuse can be done using one of the following three methods:
