A federal judge sentenced an Iowa City woman to six months in prison after she pleaded guilty to stealing Social Security benefits.

Gloria Hardiman, 59, received $94,780 in improper benefits.

Hardiman applied for Social Security benefits from May 1994 through November 2008, but didn’t disclose she was married, which would have affected her eligibility, according to a U.S. Department of Justice press release.

An investigation by the Social Security Administration revealed that Hardiman and her husband declared bankruptcy together in 2001 and had property together in the Chicago and Iowa City area.

Hardiman received housing benefits through the Iowa City Housing Authority and Department of Housing and Urban Development without reporting her husband was living with her. She must pay $86,878 to the Social Security Administration and $17,817 to the Iowa City Housing Authority.
