Senate Confirms Nominees to Social Security Advisory Board

Last week, the Senate confirmed three nominees to the Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB). The SSAB is an independent, bipartisan board created by Congress and appointed by the President and the Congress to advise the President, the Congress, and the Commissioner of Social Security on matters related to Social Security and Supplemental Security Income. Henry Aaron of the Brookings Institution will Chair the Board; his term goes through 2020. Lanhee Chen of the Hoover Institution and Stanford University will serve as a member for a term ending in 2018 and Alan Cohen of the Center for American Progress will serve as a member for a term ending in 2016. With the addition of these three new members, the Board now has full membership for the first time since 2008.
