The Board is pleased to announce the release of its annual report, which summarizes the Board’s work during fiscal year 2020 and provides detailed information regarding its accomplishments.
Upon the report’s release, Kim Hildred, Board Chair, said:
“The Board acknowledges the shared challenges this unprecedented year has brought across government and the people it serves. This year’s Annual Report highlights the Board’s efforts to ensure the timely issuance of COVID relief payments and the delivery of vital Social Security services following the closing of field offices to protect the public and their employees. The report also summarizes the Board’s other projects focused on ways to improve Social Security’s disability programs, service delivery, information technology, and representative payee program. This work would not be possible without the critical insights provided by Social Security employees and their state partners, Congressional staff, and numerous researchers and stakeholders. We thank them for their continued service.’
The Board’s mission is to advise the President, Congress, and Commissioner of Social Security on the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs. The Board is comprised of Presidential and Congressional appointees with professional staff.
