Description

"Crazy Checks" investigated fraud and abuse of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for children, a $5 billion a year program run by the Social Security Administration. SSI is designed to financially assist disabled children, but Prime Time's three-month investigation discovered a program with such lax oversight and vague guidelines, that the money can be spent for virtually anything. In addition, even normal children qualify-after being coached by their parents.
