Several eastern Kentuckians pleaded guilty to defrauding state and federal benefit programs Monday.

That's according to the United States Attorney's office who says the defendants filed plea agreements in which they admitted to lying about living arrangements and financial resources to get money from the Social Security Administration and the Medicaid Program.

Court documents show that some of them had been lying to SSA agents since 1998 saying that they had divorced or separated from their spouses when they were actually living together and sharing living expenses.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Diana Rice, Ila Rose, Granvell Ramey, Junia Ratliff, Randall Ratliff, and Linda Tackett illegally got more than $450,000 out of the SSA and Medicaid Program.
