May 04, 2021

Office Affiliation: The Office of Investigations

From the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Middle District of Florida:

Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. today ordered Isis Baldwin (39, Poinciana) to pay $11,754.76 in restitution for making false statements to a federal agency. In addition, the court also sentenced Baldwin to three years’ probation and required her to perform 45 days of work duty at the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Work Farm.

Baldwin had pleaded guilty on February 8, 2021.

According to court documents, Baldwin, a Social Security Administration (SSA) employee, applied for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits on behalf of her minor child. The application was approved by SSA, and Baldwin was appointed as the representative payee for her child’s benefits. In April 2019, SSA initiated a redetermination of continuing eligibility to determine whether Baldwin’s child remained eligible for benefits. During the redetermination inquiry, Baldwin made false statements to SSA. Specifically, Baldwin made material misrepresentations regarding her child’s living arrangements during an interview with an SSA employee. Baldwin subsequently submitted a statement to SSA in which she falsely represented that her child had moved to a different address. Baldwin also provided a falsified lease agreement in support of her false claim regarding her child’s new living arrangements.

This case was investigated by the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General. It was prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Suzanne Huyler.
