Pennsylvania woman has admitted stealing more than US$520,000 in her dead mother's Social Security cheques over the span of 30 years.

Court records show 71-year-old Carlisle resident Susan Stock pleaded guilty to a theft of government funds charge yesterday in a US federal court.

The charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to US$250,000. No sentencing date has been set.

The Social Security Administration's Office of Inspector General says it discovered the fraud when trying to arrange an interview last year with Stock's mother, who died in April 1983.

Investigators say they discovered Stock continued cashing the cheques following her mother's death.
