Our objective was to determine the appropriateness of payments the Social Security Administration (SSA) issued to beneficiaries and representative payees who were deceased according to Texas Department of State Health Services vital records. We also identified non-beneficiaries who were deceased according to Texas vital records but whose death information did not appear in SSA records.
