Protecting Your Investment
We take fraud seriously and so should you
A Message from Social Security
One of our biggest and most important responsibilities to you, the American public, is protecting your investment while continuing to provide world-class service. Preventing and combatting Social Security fraud is something we take very seriously...
Prevent and Combat Social Security Fraud
Social Security has zero tolerance for fraud. While we cannot prevent all fraud schemes any more than we can stop all crime in our communities, Social Security aggressively investigates and prosecutes those who commit fraud.
Scam artists will go to great lengths to trick you out of your personal information or money. By educating yourself and knowing how to identify and report various schemes, you can stay several steps ahead of these thieves.
Do you suspect someone of committing fraud, waste, or abuse against Social Security? SSA’s OIG Fraud Hotline takes reports of alleged fraud, waste, or abuse.
