NYC police officers and firefighters accused of scam to receive SSDI

Share: FacebookTwitterEmail

A group of NYC police officers and firefighters are being prosecuted for allegedly scamming the system to receive disability pay from the Social Security Administration. Prosecutors say the accused officers have been receiving full social security disability pay, averaging about $50,000 a year, many claiming that trauma and PTSD from the events of 9/11 left them too incapacitated to work or even leave their homes. However, prosecutors claim that the accused were coached on how to act when being considered for disability pay. They also cite pictures found on Facebook pages and other sources, of the accused involved in activities such as motorcycling, martial arts, golfing, and fishing, as evidence of the fraud.
