The New York City Fraud Allegations
Here is the description of the alleged disability fraud conspiracy in New Yorkgiven by Social Security’s Inspector General to the House Social Security Subcommittee today:
Upon retiring from the NYPD [New York Police Department] or FDNY [New York Fire Department] (a few of the defendants are other public employees), retirees would contact Esposito or Minerva, who were known within the New York City law enforcement community as men who could assist individuals in obtaining disability or retirement benefits. Esposito and Minerva were the recruiters, and generally instructed the potential applicants that, in order to obtain SSDI, their claim needed to include a psychiatric illness; and that they could create a convincing version of such an illness based on events that occurred while they were working, such as the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks .
