The Government Accountability Office is accepting anonymous reports of workers’ compensation abuses by federal employees as part of an investigation into fraud in the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA).

“For example, fraud schemes might include a beneficiary working a second job, overstating their workers’ compensation claim, or collecting benefits for a deceased individual,” according to a GAO release.

Anyone with information can email GAO at workerscompfraud@gao.gov.
