Dead Benjamins: The federal government sent an average of $120 million in retirement and disability payments to deceased former federal employees every year for several years.  In a September 2011 report, the Inspector General (IG) for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management found that “the amount of post-death improper payments is consistently $100- $150 million annually, totaling over $601 million in the last five years.”
