52 people charged with welfare fraud in Pennsylvania, Inspector General reports


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — Charges have been filed against 52 people for welfare fraud in Pennsylvania, the Office of the State Inspector General (OSIG) announced.

The 52 individuals are all facing charges after an investigation into public assistance fraud in the Commonwealth, totaling $349,835. The defendants will also be temporarily barred from receiving any public benefits, OSIG said.

“We must protect the integrity of Pennsylvania’s public assistance programs, and that’s why OSIG is working to make sure only Pennsylvanians who qualify receive assistance,” said State Inspector General Lucas M. Miller. “I am proud of OSIG’s investigators who help ensure accountability with the Commonwealth’s public assistance programs.”
