Disability Benefits Program for federal workers reported rife with waste

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013 Fraud Life & Health Workers' Compensation

The government’s program for disability benefits for federal workers is rife with waste and abuse, according to a three part series in the Washington Examiner. The series documents many cases of apparently healthy young federal workers feasting at the disability trough. One ran marathons while collecting disability. Another hauled in $142,000 in disability payments for a neck injury — all while buying a boat called "Free Ride," travelling the world, doing trapeze flips on a Club Med vacation and enjoying snow skiing and scuba diving. "For some workers, they can actually make more take-home pay by going on disability than they could if they stayed on the job, " says Mark Flatten, an investigative reporter for the Examiner.
