Lafayette Parish Courthouse
KPEL

A Lafayette woman was indicted Thursday for fraud of the Social Security system. With 46 counts of mail fraud being the accusation, Hazel Broussard had allegedly been collecting her dead uncle’s estimated $1000 Social Security checks since 1984.

According to the indictment, her uncle, Joseph Nelson Robertson, died in April of 1984 during which time, Broussard was living with him. Broussard allegedly sent a change-of-address form to the Social Security Administration to have the checks delivered to her house.

The indictment also stated that the mail fraud counts come from May 2007 to March 2011. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph T. Mickel.
