||SSAB is hosting a second policy forum:
Moving Forward - Implementing Changes in the Representative Payee Program
|WHEN: September 7, 2018; 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
|WHERE: The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, HVC-201AB (MAP)
|Presented by the Social Security Advisory Board
On Friday, September 7, 2018, the Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB) will host a day-long forum on the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) representative payee program. This forum continues SSAB’s longstanding effort to support and improve a vital government program serving approximately eight million people who need assistance in managing benefits provided by the SSA.
This forum brings policymakers, practitioners and researchers together to explore how SSA can study and improve the representative payee selection process with an evidence-based approach. Recent legislation, “The Strengthening Protections for Social Security Beneficiaries Act of 2018" (H.R. 4547) makes this event especially timely.
