Standards of Conduct Violations

Public Service is a public trust. All SSA employees are bound by the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch.

Examples of conduct violations include:

  • Accepting gifts and/or money from a person doing business with SSA
  • Holding financial interests that conflict with official duties
  • Not obeying any federal, state, or local laws or regulations.

If you know of an SSA employee violating these, or anything else you believe to be a standard of conduct issue, please contact the OIG Fraud Hotline.
