GAO-06-640R: May 16, 2006
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Social Security Administration's (SSA) new rule on the administrative review process for adjudicating initial disability claims. GAO found that (1) the rule amends SSA's administrative review process for applications for benefits that are based on whether one is disabled under title II of the Social Security Act or applications for supplemental security income payments that are based on whether one is disabled or blind under title XVI of the Act; and (2) SSA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
