Improve the Prevention, Detection, and Recovery of Improper Payments

Each year, SSA issues nearly $1 trillion in benefit payments to about 70 million people. Given the large overall dollars involved in SSA’s payments, even the slightest error in the overall process can result in millions of dollars of overpayments or underpayments. 

One of SSA’s key objectives is to improve the prevention, detection, and recovery of improper payments. The following reports review SSA's efforts to meet this objective.
