Security Advisory Board is pleased to announce publication of The Windfall
Elimination Provision: It’s Time to Correct the Math.
The report recommends that Congress replace
the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) for new retirees starting in 2017,
when earnings data for workers not covered by Social Security will become
available. These data will make it possible for SSA to calculate these workers’
benefits proportional to their contributions. Click here to read report.
Upcoming Social Security Advisory Board reports will highlight the need for a careful review of the Supplementary Security Income (SSI) program for children. A recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association "Children with Mental Disorders who Receive Disability Benefits-A Report from the IOM" provides detail on the number of children with mental and behavioral diagnoses who currently receive SSI and summarizes the main conclusions of an Institute of Medicine study published earlier this year.
