Through Electronic Death Registration, SSA and the states aim to improve the accuracy and timeliness of death information
CDI, for many years a front-end program integrity initiative, is pursuing more in-pay disability fraud cases.
OIG auditors recently matched California death records with SSA's payment records and identified payments to the deceased.
A provision in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 that aims to improve SSA program administration recently went into effect.
We review the major challenges facing SSA and discuss how we will oversee and assist efforts to address these challenges.
Underpayments, or funds that SSA should have paid but did not, are just as important to us as overpayments, which is when SSA pays too much.
