Office of Investigations - Cooperative Disability Investigations Operations

Cooperative Disability Investigations (CDI) Operations provide investigative and operational oversight of the CDI program, a key anti-fraud initiative that combats fraud within Social Security disability programs. The CDI program accomplishes its mission by reviewing questionable disability claims and investigating cases of suspected disability fraud to stop payment before it occurs, or as soon as fraud is suspected. 

 The Office is divided into three regional divisions with 50 CDI units covering 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, in addition to the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
