Igor Meyer, 47, and his wife, Zoya Mushailova, 35, collected housing and other government benefits despite owning their own home and making about $100,000 a year.
The couple drove luxury cars, took international vacations and owned property in Arizona, federal prosecutors said.
They defrauded programs for the needy of more than $70,000 over three years. Meyer lied about his income and claimed to be a single father without a job. He applied for food and Social Security benefits.
The couple was indicted in 2011. A jury convicted them a year later of multiple counts of mail fraud and theft of government funds.
