CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is partnering with the Social Security Administration to target disability fraud.

In a news release Tuesday, Morrisey announced the formation of an anti-fraud unit with Social Security and its inspector general.

The new Cooperative Disability Investigations Unit in Charleston will investigate Social Security disability claims and help to resolve potential fraud before benefits are paid.

Morrisey said he hopes the program will help save taxpayer money.

The national Cooperative Disability Investigations program includes 37 units in 31 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
