Social Security's Office of Inspector General (OIG) has released its Semiannual Report to Congress. In Fiscal Year 2014 OIG received 121,461 allegations, opened 8,335 cases and get 1,291 criminal convictions. This is for a program that pays benefits to 63.2 million people. Only 6% of the allegations had enough substance to be worthy of an investigation. Only about 1% of the allegations resulted in a conviction. Whatever fraud there is at Social Security should certainly be investigated and prosecuted but it's only a tiny, tiny part of Social Security.
