The federal government has paid as much as $35.9 million in farm subsidies to dead people, a watchdog agency claims.

The subsidies were part of the $20 billion a year effort to support farmers with crop insurance, conservation efforts and disaster assistance administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture from 2008 to 2012.
