Whittier- A 32-year-old woman who works as a claims representative at the Social Security Administration (SSA’s) office in Whittier has been indicted by the federal grand jury after being accused of stealing money from the agency’s beneficiaries.

According to reports, the woman identified as Gezal Rebecca Duran, from Pomona, faces four counts of theft by a government worker.
