The White House has released a government reorganization plan that includes several proposals about Social Security. None of the proposals are new. The plan, entitled “Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century” proposes that SSA continue reducing its paper-based processes and expand its electronic suite of services, along with other information technology modernization initiatives. Congress allocated $280 million for IT modernization in its Fiscal Year 2018 spending agreement, but SSA estimates that its full IT modernization plan requires $690 million over five years. Perhaps most important to NOSSCR members is the recommendation that SSA stop providing direct payment of fees to representatives. NOSSCR opposed this proposal when it appeared in the President’s FY19 proposed budget and helped the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities write a fact sheet on the problems this proposal would cause. In order for this change to occur, Congress would have to change the Social Security Act, and there is no indication they plan to do so—especially given that the White House estimates this change would cost $310 million over the next ten years. The plan also would change SSI’s in-kind support and maintenance provisions to a flat reduction for situations where more than one SSI recipient lives in a household. There are no details provided for this plan, but a similar proposal by SSA staff at a 2016 Social Security Advisory Board forum on SSI would cut benefits for some recipients and increase them for others, reducing poverty for SSI recipients who live alone and increasing them for those who live with family. The plan notes SSA’s goals of reinstituting reconsideration in all states, reducing the physical space the agency uses, instituting a standardized office design, and implementing “quantity and quality metrics for employees.” The only proposals that NOSSCR supports are to eliminate reductions in SSI for unmarried couples who “hold themselves out” as married to their communities, and to eliminate dedicated accounts for underpayments of child SSI. Other parts of the plan would merge the Departments of Labor and Education into a single Department of Education and the Workforce, move rural housing programs from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, move SNAP (formerly called food stamps) and WIC nutrition assistance from USDA to the Department of Health and Human Services and rename the latter department the Department of Health and Public Welfare, privatize the Postal Service, have all background checks performed by the Department of Defense rather than having civilians checked by the Office of Personnel Management, and move parts of the Army Corps of Engineers from the Department of Defense to the Department of Transportation and the Interior Department. There are no time frames set out for these proposals.
