Financial Rewards

More than 4,000 False Claim suits have been filed since 1986, when the statute was strengthened to make it easier and more rewarding for private citizens to file suit on the government's behalf. The government has recovered over $6 billion as a result of the suits, of which over $1 billion has been paid to Relators / whistleblowers. Generally, only the Relator who is the first to file a lawsuit can be rewarded for reporting the fraud. Even if one person uncovers the fraud, someone else can file the lawsuit first and bar the first whistleblower from sharing in any recovery.
