Bob Joondeph, JD was sworn in to begin his six-year term on the Social Security Advisory Board ending September 30, 2024. He was selected by Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member, Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), for appointment to the Board.
The Social Security Advisory Board hosted a day-long forum in September 2018 on the Social Security Administration’s representative payee program. This forum brought policymakers, practitioners and researchers together to explore how SSA can study and improve the rep payee selection process with an evidence-based approach.
A complement to the Board's January 2018 report, the Representative Payee Chart Collection highlights data related to the administration of the program and emphasizes the growing need for rep payees in the future.
The Disability Chartbook includes 11 chapters on the administration of Social Security's disability programs, including: applications, allowances, continuing disability reviews, terminations, beneficiaries and their characteristics, variation in DDS decision-making, state administrative arrangements, hearings and appeals, processing times, and federal courts.
