One guy got caught, thousands get away with it every day, in hundreds of industries.
If you scammed LTD your company Thats insurance fraud, its a felony and your company might have the right to take away your pension.
I am not a lawyer, but if I worked 20yrs I would not risk my pension that would feed my family by committing a crime...but thats just me.
I see what you are saying
and it was bad choice of words on my part.
The truth is nobody really knows the amount of fraud, not even the experts.
And lets not only talk about LTD
Talk about Welfare, CHIPS, all forms of govt assistance.
Don't just look at total fraud, look at things like what a percentage of food stamps are really being spent on. Medicare fraud, unemployment insurance. Money being thrown at govt programs designed to help and a percentage of the money never reaches the end users because of graft and corruption.
I am not against govt assistance.
I want the people who really need it to get more of it.
And I want to pay less for it.
