An audit conducted by the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) inspector general finds that thousands of social security numbers of people who are long deceased were used by illegal immigrants to apply for work, and some numbers were also used to open bank accounts.
CNSNews.com reports that the March 4audit has identified 6.5 million social security number-holders who are aged 112 or older, for whom no date of death has been assigned in the electronic file known as Numident.
According to the audit, for tax years 2006-2011, “SSA received reports that individuals using 66,920 SSNs had approximately $3.1 billion in wages, tips, and self-employment income. SSA transferred the earnings to the Earnings Suspense File because the employees’ or self-employed individuals’ names on the earnings reports did not match the number-holders’ names.”
