Dozens Disqualifed From Broome Welfare Benefits

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Broome County officials say several dozen people were removed from benefit programs over the past month.

The county Security Division implemented more than 100 administrative disqualifications during November as investigators looked into suspected welfare fraud.

Those cases involved 67 people who were found to have committed a fraudulent act.

According to County Executive Debra Preston’s office, those who were disqualified won’t be eligible for benefits for at least six months.

In some of the most serious cases, people could be permanently disqualified.

Broome County has imposed nearly 600 benefit disqualifications this year.
