SSA's Plan to Reduce Improper Payments Under Executive Order 13520, as Reported in March 2013

October 01, 2013
During our review, we noted SSA generally presented all information required for Executive Order 13520 in its Annual Report.


However, the Agency did not report all required information describing corrective actions for the Title XVI Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program or explain the Title II Old-Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance and SSI programs’ performance in meeting its reduction targets. We also noted two immaterial instances of figures that were inaccurate based on the supporting documentation. The Agency has continued reporting the same corrective actions for SSI in the past three reporting cycles and has not reported any new initiatives that prevent and identify improper payments.
