CDI Unit Active In Utah
This is from an piece, which mostly concerns allegations of workers compensation fraud, posted by a Utah television station:
People who feign disabilities in Utah can get away with millions of dollars – money you pay into social security and money employers pay to cover accidents on the job. ...
Workers compensation is a private insurer that began as a state agency. On the federal level, the Social Security Administration provides disability benefits.
It has a "Cooperative Disability Investigation Unit" - operating in Salt Lake for roughly a year – which tries to stop fraud before it starts.
In a recent 3 month period, the local CDI unit, as it's called, says it confirmed 42 cases of fraud or "similar fault."
