Featured Audit Report

Friday, July 22, 2016

We issued this report to identify Title II spousal or widow(er) beneficiaries who received improper Title XVI payments because they did not report their marriages to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

When determining individuals’ Title XVI payment eligibility and amounts, SSA evaluates the income and resources of the individuals and their spouses as well as the spouses’ Title XVI eligibility. Therefore, SSA requires that recipients report any changes in their marital status.
