How Does the SEC Whistleblower Program Work?

To persuade whistleblowers to report misconduct, the Dodd-Frank Act provides cash rewards and protections against firing or employer harassment for employees who provide knowledge of securities and commodities violations to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

Anyone who reports original information that results in a successful SEC action is eligible to receive 10-30% of the recovered fines, penalties, and damages if those damages exceed $1 million.

Since 2010, SEC whistleblowers have collected over $1.3 billion in awards.

In October 2020, the SEC granted its largest whistleblower award to date, a record $114 million, to a single individual.
$114 Million

Recent improvements to the SEC whistleblower program have established a rebuttable presumption of the a statutory maximum award of 30% when the maximum award would be $5 million or less.

How To Qualify for an SEC Whistleblower Reward

If you have inside or material information on securities fraud or an SEC violation and want to claim a reward, you should consult with an experienced SEC whistleblower attorney.

If you hire an attorney who submits the information to the SEC, you can remain anonymous at that time. The information is always confidential, but to be anonymous to the SEC, you must hire an attorney.

The odds of your case being accepted are much higher if you have an experienced SEC whistleblower team to help differentiate your claim from the thousands submitted to the SEC.

The key to collecting an SEC whistleblower reward under the Dodd-Frank Act is having original, voluntary information relating to federal securities laws violations that have resulted in over $1 million in damages.
