Improper Payments at an All-Time High

As we enter calendar year 2017, the Federal government will be dealing with new and continuing payments which could be considered improper. An improper payment is any payment that should not have been made or was made in an incorrect amount. This include overpayments, underpayments, payments made to ineligible recipients, or payments that were not properly documented. Improper payments are always an area of concern for the federal government. For the fourth straight year, the Federal government increased the amount of money described as “improper payments” in 2016.
