In this report, we sought to demonstrate the potential monetary impact if legislation is enacted that allows SSA to require that all parents applying for or receiving Supplemental Security Income payments on behalf of their children file for child support, if appropriate, and to obtain and match State child support data with the SSI rolls to identify unreported child support payments that may impact SSI payments.
