An Inspector General report for the Social Security Administration flew under the radar when it was issued in August, and the administration refused to answer Breitbart Newss inquiry about the findings that reveal $11.6 million in payments were paid to dead people in Puerto Rico.
The findings of the report stated:
SSA issued approximately $11.6 million in payments after death to 149 beneficiaries and 4 representative payees who died in Puerto Rico from January 1992 through December 2016. Identifying and correcting these discrepancies will prevent approximately
$1.4 million in additional improper payments after death over the next 12 months. We also identified 33,258 non-beneficiaries who were deceased according to Puerto Rico Department of Health vital records but whose death information was not in SSAs Numident [Numerical Identification System, is the Social Security Administrations computer database file of an abstract of the information contained in an application for a United States Social Security number].
We could not determine why the deaths were not in SSAs Numident or whether Puerto Rico reported the deaths to SSA. Implementing EDR [Electronic Death Registration] should help ensure Puerto Rico deaths are properly and timely reported to SSA.
The Numident contained death information for two of the four representative payees; however, SSA had not replaced the representative payees. In several prior audits, we found SSA did not always replace representative payees after it posted death information to their Numident records.

“What a racket!”
Also see: Clintons & Haiti! Wherever you find the suffering of others and some quick cash to be made, you can follow the money right back to those two grifters.
Not to mention the cash cow that Ukraine as for the Dems - which PDJT is shining a light on these days! MAGA!
Look for 0bama to be cashing in until the day he dies with his phony ‘Charities.’
A POX on all their houses!
OMG!!! Our GOVT. is so CORRUPT and STUPID!
Third-worlders would game the system?
Knock me over with a feather.
Should have given them Independence years ago.
Go after the criminal families who cashed the checks.
This is great. On the other hand, I’ve heard that there are many folks that have been placed on this list that are very much alive and fight for years to correct it. It basically puts their lives in limbo and they have an extremely hard time with respect to credit, or other benefits that require a SS#.
Not only did they get $ but they voted too!
Hey! Dead Puerto Ricans have to eat too. After all, they need energy to vote straight DemocRAT.
I’ll bet these dead gold all voted straight Dem.
Sounds like the next step should be to see who cashed the checks or used the deposits.
They all voted Democrat.
Let the living double-dippers come down to the FBI office and get finger printed and have a biometric eye-scan.
I wonder if they still vote in every election.
They aren’t dead, they’re only resting!
The money probably flowed back to the democrats somehow. Follow the path.
Well if it’s 11.6 million in Puerto Rico, it must run in the billions and perhaps trillions in all states & territories that receive SSA payments. No wonder it’s going broke.
do that or place them on the “death list”. Their basically screwed at that point.
They do that here in NC
