Social Security Fraud

Darren D. Shull, P.A. > Social Security Fraud

Are you or a friend or family member being investigated for Social Security Fraud? It’s very important that you consult with an attorney before answering questions of a Law Enforcement Investigator. At the Law Offices of Darren D. Shull, P.A. we handle Social Security fraud cases from investigation to the courtroom. There are many different Federal laws that could possibly be violated if one is accused of social security fraud.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines that if a person is a Security Income (SSI) beneficiary  and that there is a representative payee that either was continuing to receive the monthly SSI benefits after the death of the beneficiary or was not using the funds to benefit the beneficiary, that person may be investigated and indicted for charges such as wire fraud in violation of Title 18 USC Section 1343, false statements to a federal agency in violation of Title 18 USC Section 1001, and/or  representative payee fraud in violation of Title 42 USC Section 1383a(a)(4).

An indictment only contains charges.  The defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.



These cases are investigated by the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General and prosecuted by the United States Attorney for the federal jurisdiction they arise from.



Attorney Darren D. Shull has been a member of the Federal Bar Southern District of Florida for over 24 years and handles and defends criminal cases involving Federal Social Security Fraud in South Florida.



Please consult with our Office if you or someone you know are investigated for Social Security Fraud in Jupiter, Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach or the Treasure Coast.
