NEW: Pension Fraud Hotline Launched

Thursday, September 13, 2012

 

General Treasurer Gina M. Raimondo and Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin on Wednesday launched a way for constituents to report incidents of disability pension abuse. The phone number, 401-462-TIPS (462-8477) is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for people who have concerns regarding disability fraud.

"For the first time, Rhode Islanders will have the ability to take direct action and help stop pension fraud and abuse," Raimondo said. "Abuse that costs taxpayer money and compromises the integrity of the retirement system is unacceptable and must be reported and investigated."

"Each and every tax dollar must be used wisely and efficiently, and we must be vigilant in rooting out fraudulent uses of government programs," Kilmartin said. "Combining forces to identify and combat pension disability fraud in Rhode Island will further protect taxpayer dollars."

The Employees' Retirement System of Rhode Island will check the hotline voicemail to collect all pertinent messages. Callers to the hotline may leave information anonymously or they may leave their contact information for follow-up.

To assist in the investigation, callers are encouraged to be prepared to leave as much detail as possible about the alleged abuse, including names, addresses and any additional important information to help ERSRI investigate the claim.

Raimondo and Kilmartin are committed to preserving the integrity of the retirement system for all hard working employees, retirees and taxpayers.
