The Board’s 2019 SSI Statement outlines the complexity of dedicated accounts for children with the accounts, their payees, and SSA. It also provides an overview of the legislative history and past bipartisan calls for their elimination. The statement notes the Board’s intention to further explore the issue.
The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 gives Board members the opportunity, individually or jointly, to include their views on SSI in SSA’s annual report to the President and Congress on the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The Board or one of its members has submitted a statement for each SSI Annual Report from 1998 to the present. Previous Board SSI Statements are available here.
