A SOCIAL worker in a Madrid psychiatric hospital is accused of using a dead man’s ID to claim his pension for more than 30 years.

The woman is appearing in court in the national capital today Monday facing charges for a possible Social Security fraud which began decades ago.

She is believed to have used her position to get her hands on the documentation of the man, who did not have family, and used falsified copies to open a bank account for the receipt of the pension payments. The possible fraud could add up to more than €200,000.

If she is found guilty she could be looking at six years behind bars, plus having to pay the money back.
