53-year-old man didn’t report mother’s death so he could keep collecting her pension

Spoiler:
A 53-year-old unemployed man has been arrested on suspicion of abandoning the corpse of his mother in Yamato City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Police said Takeshi Matsuyama has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying, “I was afraid I would stop receiving my mother’s pension if people found out she was dead.”

According to police, Matsuyama kept his 79-year-old mother’s body at his home from the end of last month, when she is believed to have died, until Monday this week, Fuji TV reported.

The case came to light when a local welfare official, not having heard from her for awhile, visited the residence. After noticing a foul odor, the official returned to the ward office which contacted police. Police went to the apartment and found the woman’s remains in a bedroom.

Police are currently investigating the details surrounding the mother’s death.

Man Lives With Dead Mother's Body In Spain For "Almost A Year" To Collect Pension
Police detained the woman's 62-year-old son for fraud for failing to report her death.

Spoiler:
MADRID: A Spanish man who allegedly lived with the body of his dead mother for up to a year to continue to collect her pension has been arrested, the police said Thursday.
Officers found the woman's "badly decomposed" body at a Madrid flat on Wednesday after receiving a call from neighbours who reported a "strong odour", a police spokesman said.

Police then detained the woman's 62-year-old son for fraud for failing to report her death aged 92 and continuing to collect her pension, he added.


"The son did not do what he should have done," the spokesman said, adding that the man lived in the flat with his mother's remains for "several months, possibly almost a year".

NJ WOMAN STOLE $140K IN DEAD MOTHER’S PENSION BENEFITS

Spoiler:
An Atlantic County woman has admitted stealing more than $140,000 in state pension benefits that were paid to her mother for eight years after she died.

Diana Heil pleaded guilty Friday to theft. The state Attorney General's office will recommend the 49-year-old Pleasantville resident receive a 364-day county jail term when she's sentenced March 8, and she also must pay full restitution.

Authorities say Heil's mother got survivor's benefits as the beneficiary of her late husband, who was a member of the Teachers' Pension and Annuity Fund. When Heil's mother died in 2005, state officials weren't told of the death.


The payments continued until 2013, when Heil reported her mother's death. Authorities say Heil promised to return the money, but instead made a series of large withdrawals and wire transfers.

Pleasantville woman pleads guilty to stealing $140K in pension funds

Spoiler:
A 49-year-old Pleasantville woman pleaded guilty Friday to stealing more than $140,000 in state pension funds that belonged to her deceased parents.

An investigation by the state found that Diana A. Heil stole $140,873 from a survivor’s pension beneficiary account that belonged to her mother, according to the state Attorney General’s Office. Heil’s mother was receiving survivor pension benefits from her deceased husband, who had been a member of the state Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund.

Heil pleaded guilty to third-degree theft by unlawful taking in Gloucester County Superior Court. The state will recommended she be sentenced to 364 days in county jail and pay full restitution. She is scheduled to be sentenced March 8.


Heil’s mother died in 2005, but the state Division of Pension and Benefits continued to make monthly benefit payments into a joint checking account the mother shared with her daughter. According to a news release, those payments accrued in the mostly inactive account until 2013, when the bank alerted Heil about the deposits, who in turn informed the state about her mother’s death.


The pension division conducted an audit and contacted Heil about the deposited funds, which she acknowledged did not belong to her and promised to return. Instead, authorities said she proceeded to make a series of large withdrawals and wire transfers from the bank account.

Pleasantville woman gets probation in theft of $140,000 in state benefits

Spoiler:
A Pleasantville woman was sentenced to two years’ probation for stealing more than $140,000 in state pension benefits paid to her mother after the woman died.
Diana Heil, 49, learned about the money in 2013, after the bank notified her that the money was going into an account she and her mother shared, according to the charges.
The money was for her mother, who was receiving her husband’s survivor’s benefits from the New Jersey Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund.
At that time, Heil then told the state of her mother’s death in 2005.
That sparked an audit, which resulted in the Division of Pensions and Benefits telling Heil she had to return the money.
Heil acknowledged the money was not hers, but instead of returning it, she made a series of large withdrawals and wire transfers totaling about $140,873, according to her previous admission.

Gloucester County Superior Court Judge Robert Becker Jr. also sentenced Heil to 364 days in the county jail, which would be served at the end of her probation. But that sentence will be waived as long as she doesn’t violate the conditions of her probation.
