Hawaii Man Failed to Disclose a $1M in Assets While Receiving SSI

A Hawaii man, whose total assets equaled $1.75M during an eight-year period, fraudulently received more than $24,000 in SSI while hiding these assets from SSA. In order to steal less than $100 per month from the needs-based SSI program, the man concealed his ownership of a posh condominium, stock, bonds, and property in other states.  After a Departmental Appeals Board administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing, the ALJ upheld OCIG’s $140,000 penalty and $7,658 assessment, for a total recovery of $147,658.
