CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Pennsylvania woman has agreed to plead guilty to stealing more than $520,000 in Social Security checks over the span of 30 years.

Investigators say 71-year-old Susan Stock, of Carlisle, continued cashing the checks following her mother’s death in 1983.

The Social Security Administration’s Office of Inspector General said it discovered the fraud when trying to arrange an interview last year with Stock’s mother, who died in April 1983.

U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith said Thursday that Stock has agreed to plead guilty to the charge of theft of government funds. She faces up to 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. She has also agreed to repay $523,000 to Social Security Administration.
