Case 6:10-cr-00258-GAP-KRS Document 25 Filed 01/10/11 Page 11 of 14
On April 10, 2010, R.J.B. reported to the Orlando Social Security Administration District Office ("Orlando SSA") that he was the biological father of AK. who was receiving social security survival benefits on C.F.1. who had died July 4, 2006. Jennifer Isenman ("ISENMAN"), R.J.B.'s ex-girlfriend and mother of AK., filed for benefits on October 24, 2006, claiming that C.F.1. was the father of AK., when, in fact, he was not AK.'s biological father; instead, he was ISENMAN'S uncle.
ISENMAN was awarded social security survivor benefits which she continued to receive until November 2010. The Veteran Affairs Office of Inspector General's Office ("VA-OIG") began its investigation pursuant to a May 5, 2010 hotline complaint reporting that ISENMAN was receiving veteran survivor benefits for her child, AK., under C.F.I.'s claims file number. ISENMAN informed the Department of Veteran Affairs ("VA") that her child's, AK., father was C.F.I., a deceased veteran, so that she could obtain Dependency and Indemnity Compensation ("DIC") for AK. On October 17, 2006, the VA received a claim for DIC for AK. ISENMAN claimed to have been married, by common law, to C.F.I., who was injured while serving in the military and died on July 4, 2006, due to complications from his service related injuries. ISENMAN provided to the VA a VA Form 21-534 "Application for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation, Death Pension and Accrued Benefits by a Surviving Spouse or Child (Including Death Compensation if Applicable)", a VA Form 21-4170 "Statement of Marital Relationship" and two VA Form 21-4171's "Supporting Statement Regarding Marriage". On VA Form 21-534, ISENMAN stated that she and C.F.1. lived together like husband and wife, she was expecting the birth of his child, and she was not receiving benefits for her child from the Social Security Administration (USSA"). She signed VA Form 21-534 on October 10, 2006. On October 10,2006, ISENMAN executed VA Form 21-4170 and stated that she lived with C.F.1. from June 2005 until his death.
On April 8, 2008, the VA Regional Office in Cleveland, Ohio provided a decision in reference to AK.'s claim for DIC benefits. The VA granted AK.'s DIC benefits effective September 7, 2006. ISENMAN, on behalf of AK., initially received $438 per month, and then the payment increased each year to a current payment of $488 per month.
A copy of the DNA Parentage Test Report from DOC DNA Diagnostics Center in Fairfield, Ohio shows the mother of AK. as ISENMAN, and the father as RJ.B. The DNA samples were collected from ISENMAN, AK., and RJ.B. on September 15, 2006, and on September 22,2006, it was determined that the probability of RJ.B. of being the biological father of AK. was 99.9999996%. RJ.B. provided Orlando SSA and VAOIG with a copy of a Certificate of Birth for AK., with a date of birth of September 7, 2006, an issue date of December 8,2006, and the father's name of RJ.B. RJ.B. also provided a copy of an Acknowledgment of Paternity showing the child as AK., mother as ISENMAN, and the natural father as RJ.B. ISENMAN and RJ.B. signed the form and it was notarized on December 5, 2006.
On June 23, 2010, Special Agent Mervyn Miller (USA Miller") interviewed ISENMAN at Orlando SSA Prior to the interview, SA Miller advised ISENMAN that the interview was voluntary and that she did not have to answer questions. Further, if she decided to answer questions, she could stop the questioning at any time. ISENMAN said she understood and agreed to the interview. ISENMAN admitted that on September 22,2006, a DNA test was conducted identifying the biological father of AK. to be her then boyfriend, R.J.B. ISENMAN stated that on October 24,2006, she applied for social security survivor benefits for AK. using her uncle's name, C.F.I., as the father. ISENMAN acknowledged that she knew it was wrong to have applied for and received social security survivor benefits for AK. using her uncle's name and social security number.
From September 2006 through June 2010, ISENMAN fraudulently received $29,679.00 in social security survivor benefits on behalf of AK., of which she was not entitled, for her own use. At all times relevant, ISENMAN knew AK. was not entitled to the social security survivor benefits because C.F.1. was not the biological father of AK.; nevertheless, she continued to take the money for her personal use. From October 1, 2006 through November 30,2010, ISENMAN fraudulently received $23,556.00 in veteran benefits on behalf of AK., to which she was not entitled, for her own use. At all times relevant, ISENMAN knew A K. was not entitled to the veteran benefits because C.F.1. was not the biological father of AK., nevertheless, she continued to take the money.
