Response . \nEven though the penalties that are indicated in the regulations of the SSA are "scary" and do not include the possibility of incarceration in a federal facility, it rarely happens in cases of misunderstanding. The problem is how exactly was the person entitled to, or receive fringe benefits? Were the benefits of belonging to the deceased or the deceased's dependent children? Was the SSA notified the beneficiary's death? All of these factors, and possibly others directly affect what if any action of the secretariat of health will have in regards to the issue.
