A 51-year-old Omaha woman has been indicted on suspicion of fraudulently applying for and using Social Security payments meant for someone else.
In a news release issued Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office for Nebraska said Elizabeth Lee Foster had been charged in a two-count indictment.
The first count alleges that between March 2008 and last December, Foster failed to disclose that she was no longer authorized to receive Social Security payments for her daughter. The second count says Foster applied to receive her daughter's Social Security payments, but did not use the payments for her daughter's benefit.
Foster faces up to 10 years in federal prison if she's convicted of both counts.
