Classification 37: False Claims against the Government (Obsolete)

This classification was established November 16, 1921, for cases on investigations of false claims for compensation by veterans under the Sweet Act and the War Risk Insurance Act (this had not been used when the Bureau adopted the Justice Department’s filing scheme earlier in 1921). The program for the vocational rehabilitation of disabled veterans of world War I was administered by the U.S. Veteran’s Bureau during the period 1921-1928. During this time the FBI investigated claims by the veteran for monthly compensation while he was receiving vocational training. The classification was closed in 1928.
