Employees of the Social Security Administration (SSA) have some serious responsibilities — but sometimes there are questions about whether they can be trusted with it.
While some do their duties well, others fall short. And this doesn’t just mean making mistakes, either. Sometimes, they’re accused of serious crimes.
Former SSA claims specialist Justin Skiff is being accused of wire fraud, Social Security fraud, and money laundering.
The illegal activities reportedly happened during the period of August 2019-September 2021. Skiff could face decades in prison, and over a million in fines. If convicted, he must also forfeit any property traced to the funds he acquired through his actions.
