The Work Activity Report was relied upon by the Social Security Administration to determine Davis-Smith’s continued receipt of Social Security Administration Benefits. The investigation also determined that in 2010 Davis-Smith used the identification of another person for purposes of obtaining employment.
This case was the result of an investigation conducted by the Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General.
