House hearing on Disability Waste, Fraud, and Abuse

The House Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security held a hearing in which the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) efforts to minimize improper payments and protect taxpayers’ dollars from waste, fraud, and abuse were highlighted. In her testimony, SSA’s Deputy Commissioner Carolyn Colvin noted that the Social Security program “is the most accurate in the Federal Government” in terms of payment accuracy. This was the second hearing in a series on “Securing the Future of the Social Security Disability Insurance Program.” Testimony and archived video of the hearing will be available on the Committee web site.
