Have any of you ever reported a sibling for their own SSI disability fraud? This would be related to learning that he/she has worked with some consistency despite a disability claim, concealed assets and traded securities in elder parents names or potentially failed to report income to Social Security, in violation of SSI limits. There could also be inappropriate use of the elders Social Security income.
I am grappling with the responsibility we all have to ensure the integrity and viability of the Social Security system. Versus the harm that could be felt by the elders themselves if the person they have enabled (perhaps knowingly in some cases, clearly unknowingly in others) is found to have broken the law.
There is also the risk that this is not "provable" - that a person who deals in cash only, puts assets in others names, etc. will not be found to have broken the law. I've seen a few of you have posted about an outcome like this. In which case the situation is inflamed without any productive result (for the individuals OR the health of the social security system).
Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom.
