28 new indictments in NY disability fraud case

NEW YORK (AP) — Law enforcers say 28 new indictments have been issued in New York as part of a sprawling Social Security disability fraud case.

According to The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1fBp0Gd ) the defendants were expected to be brought to court on Tuesday.

Authorities said in January that a decades-long scam netted more than $20 million in Social Security disability payments.

They say recipients claimed they could barely care for themselves but were engaged in a wide range of activities that proved otherwise.

Prosecutors say many recipients were advised to link their supposed symptoms to 9/11.

Authorities previously announced the arrest of three advisers, a lawyer and more than 100 benefits recipients, including former police officers and firefighters.
