United States SEC Awards Whistleblower $20 Million, Whistleblowers are Awarded 10% to 30% if Penalties Exceed $1 Million

30th November 2022 | Hong Kong

The United States Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) has awarded a whistleblower $20 million for providing critical information that led to successful enforcement action.   Creola Kelly, Chief of United States SEC Office of the Whistleblower: “Today’s whistleblower played a crucial role in the ultimate success of the enforcement proceeding. Whistleblowers can help advance existing investigations in meaningful ways when their information saves the agency time and resources, and when their contributions allow SEC staff to better understand complicated issues.”  Whistleblowers are awarded 10% to 30% of the money sanctioned, if penalties exceed $1 million.  The United States SEC protects the confidentiality of whistleblowers and does not disclose information that could reveal a whistleblower’s identity (Dodd-Frank Act).  The largest payout to a whistleblower is $114 million in 2020.
