Accuracy in Media

More of your hard-earned dollars being wasted by yet another government agency:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) made $11 billion in excess payments to individuals collecting disability insurance who later returned to work, according to a government watchdog investigation.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released on Monday found that the billions in overpayments were made between 2005 and 2014.

“From fiscal years 2005 through 2014, GAO found that Social Security Administration overpaid $11 billion in Disability Insurance (DI) program benefits to beneficiaries who had returned to work and had earnings above program limits,” the report says.
