Amarillo Woman Guilty Of Social Security Benefits Fraud

An Amarillo woman has pleaded guilty to social security fraud. Blanca Alvarez, age unknown, faced charges of stealing Social Security benefits.

Alvarez pleaded guilty in Amarillo’s U.S. District Court to one charge of Social Security fraud. According to federal court documents, Alvarez filed for Social Security benefits on behalf of a child. The child was in a state foster care program.

Alvarez knowingly lied to receive disability payments for the child, according to the complaint. Alvarez received about $26,000 in Social Security payments for the child who was under the care of the state of Texas. The defendant waits to hear a judge’s decision; she is facing up to five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
