This report sought to determine the status of corrective actions SSA had taken to address recommendations in our July 2006 report, SSA's Program for Issuing Replacement Social Security Cards to Prisoners. SSA has taken steps to enhance controls for issuing replacement Social Security cards to prisoners, but we determined that vulnerabilities still exist, and the Agency needs to address those vulnerabilities to improve Social Security Number integrity and security.
