Legislation passed under the Reform and Consumer Protection Act allows a whistleblower who voluntarily provides information to the SEC that leads to a recovery of $1 million or more, up to 30 percent recovery of the amount collected. Under the statute, a whistleblower is an individual who provides original information relating to a violation of either securities or commodities trading laws that: (1) derive from independent knowledge or analysis, (2) not previously known to the Agency and (3) not derived from public information.
