About TDI Fraud

In order to collect TDI legally in Rhode Island, a claimant must be determined unable to work due to an illness or injury by a licensed Qualified Healthcare Provider.

A TDI claimant who is currently collecting TDI benefits is committing fraud if:

  • The claimant is also working full-time while receiving TDI benefit payments
  • The claimant is working part-time AND has not reported the resulting income to TDI
  • The claimant does not divulge to TDI that the illness/injury is work related
  • The claimant is in receipt of or has filed for Worker’ Compensation payments and does not divulge such information to TDI

An employer is committing fraud if:

  • The employer colludes with workers so that they may unlawfully receive TDI benefit payments; or
  • The employer pays cash wages or other hidden compensation in order to avoid paying related taxes

A Qualified Healthcare Provider (QHP) is committing fraud if:

  • The QHP colludes with the patient so that he/she may unlawfully receive TDI benefit payments
  • The QHP certifies the patient medically unable to work to instead allow the patient to travel or attend school
  • The QHP continues to certify the patient unable to work after the patient has recovered from the illness/injury
  • The QHP certifies the patient medically unable to work to permit the patient to receive TDI benefits instead of Unemployment Insurance benefits.  Please note: patients may prefer to receive TDI benefits since it has a higher benefit rate and the benefit payments are considered non-taxable income.
