How Disability Fraud Affects Everyone

Randall Frisque is 58 years old, is an American and lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This man has become infamous during the last days; News about his life has circulated in numerous media. Your case is, unfortunately, very common. Last week, Mr. Frisque was sentenced to one year in prison for fraudulently charging Social Security disability or disability benefits.


A very common fraud

Prosecutors said Randall Frisque collected money from the state while working 50 to 60 hours a week as a truck driver. Witnesses say that the subject not only did not hide his scam, but boasted of illegally charging Social Security for Disability.

Frisque was also sentenced to two years of supervision, once he has served his year in prison, and to pay $ 130,000 in restitution to the Social Security Administration and Medicare.


These practices complicate us all

Simulating disabilities, inventing stories, illnesses and diseases with the objective of collecting Social Security for Disability has become a very common practice in the United States. On the other hand, when people suffer real disabilities, everything becomes more difficult.

As is logical, faced with so many scams, lies and inventions, the authorities of the Social Security Administration – the body that is in charge of granting Social Security for Disability, has reinforced its controls and filters. This means that, when a person suffers from a real disability, he or she has to go through a longer and more complex process.
