About the OIG

The Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General has an enormous responsibility to protect taxpayer dollars.

Our mission is to serve the public through independent oversight of SSA’s programs and operations.

We accomplish our mission by:

  • conducting independent audits, evaluations, and investigations;
  • searching for and reporting systemic weaknesses in SSA’s programs and operations; and
  • providing recommendations for program, operations, and management improvements.

In Fiscal Year 2020, we expanded our priorities to include oversight and investigations work related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
