The Social Security Administration (SSA) has paid at least 1,546 dead people $31 million, with some of the deceased receiving benefits for 20 years.
According to a June 21 audit by the Inspector General for the Social Security Administration, 2,475 beneficiaries had a recorded date of death in Social Securitys own database. The IG determined that at least 1,546 of these individuals were in fact dead and still receiving benefits, totaling $30,956,695 through May 2012.
Among those 1,546 deceased, some were receiving benefits for up to 20 years.

So the other 929 were only mostly dead?

That must be a pretty low error rate considering the number of people receiving benefits.
I bet it’s more like Billion than Million. $31 million slippage in a program that dispenses many, many billions annually is annoying and should be followed up, but is much less than I would expect.
Search their pockets for change...
