Feds Paid $1 Billion in Social Security Benefits to Individuals Without a SSN

Feds Paid $1 Billion in Social Security Benefits to Individuals Without a SSN:

 "The Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit.

The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves."
