Welfare Fraud is a Class C Felony
Every once in a while you come across news articles regarding benefit fraud. The article linked below is one such article and it describes the story of a minister in Indiana who failed to report income to the Social Security Administration. Reverend Rochelle did not report his annual income of about $15000 to SSA and, apparently, this constitutes welfare fraud, which is a felony offense. His future social security disability checks will be garnished, though the article does not mention the percentage of his monthly disability benefit that will be taken for the garnishment.
