Social Security Administration

Ban on applicants with history of fraud

Current policy allows anyone to file a new claim or appeal any unfavorable decision with no limit. Many individuals are clearly not disabled but continue to file claims for decades. Create legislation to ban any individual from filing or appealing any disability claim if the agency documents false statements made by the the applicant. Document the fraud and flag the individual so the new claim or appeal is quickly identified discarded. A ban of 2-3 years for any false statement would save a lot of money that is being wasted to give individuals a right they do not deserve.
