Minnesota Man Concealed Work Activity by Using Wife’s SSN for 49 Months

A Minnesota man failed to report his work activity to SSA while collecting disability benefits.  He also actively conspired to conceal his work activity by requesting that his employer pay his salary to his wife, using her name and Social Security number (SSN), instead of his own.  His fraudulent actions resulted in an overpayment of $60,284.  OCIG negotiated a settlement including a $51,000 penalty and a $60,284 assessment, for a total recovery of $111,284.
