SSAB Commends SSA for Actions, Recommends Additional Actions

In an April 6 letter to Andrew Saul, Commissioner of Social Security, the Social Security Advisory Board recognized the SSA’s efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically commending the agency’s efforts ” … to protect the public and its workforce from COVID-19 by authorizing employees to telework.” The letter further commended the agency’s work to ” … facilitate automatic COVID-19 relief payments to all Social Security beneficiaries and their families.”

In addition, the SSAB urged the Agency to take steps to ensure that Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who are not currently receiving Social Security benefits also receive economic impact payments ” … automatically and quickly, without filing any forms.” Finally, the SSAB letter requests SSA to reconsider the decision to suspend state Protection and Advocacy (P&A) representative payee monitoring efforts, noting that the pandemic has heightened the risk vulnerable seniors face.
