Common Types of Fraud involving Nebraska Disabilities 

There are generally three types of common fraud associated with Nebraska disabilities, including the following: 

1. Faking an injury or illness- This is the most common type of fraud involving Nebraska disabilities.  It is easy to fake an injury or illness, and even with the help of professional medical testimony, the fact that a worker might be faking an injury is often hard to detect. 

2. Working while on disability- In NE, many people are caught working while still receiving Nebraska disability. They may work under the table or even do the same job they were doing before, and although a person may work while receiving payments through Nebraska disability, they can’t work more than a specified amount of hours or outside of a specified job. 

3. Collecting NE disability after healed- this type of fraud associated with NE disability is normally easily detectable, but many people will try to receive payments after they have been cleared.

1. Social Security Disability Insurance- In order to receive this NE disability benefit, you must sustain an injury that may inhibit you or greatly reduce the amount of hours you can work in a whole year.  You will receive monthly payments that are contingent on your prior salary and work history.  If your Nebraska disabilities benefits are more than $25,000 a year, you will have to pay federal income taxes on these payments.

Supplemental Security Income- a person can also receive SSI benefits along with SSDI benefits in NE disability compensation.  In order to receive these Nebraska disabilities benefits, the party must fall below federal poverty levels, and they will be able to receive help with food stamps, transportation, housecleaning, and other programs as well.
