Eliminate Duplicate Forms

For example, in SSA, if someone is denied disability benefits, we send them another medical authorization form, adult / child disability report, & a large return envelope. Have them only submit new info & go into the offices since everything is already electronic from the initial claim. Rep Payee accountee forms & disability update forms are sent out several times over. Suspend benefits if they can't return forms on time. ...more »

Save BILLIONS – Repeal DOMA

This is not a new social issue. Generations have had stable, non-traditional living arrangements. The Founding Fathers would want a tweak in federal law to promote efficiency, quality, simplicity, speed, & EQUITY. One simple change would put tens of thousands back into these households & the general economy. The IRS would feast on hundreds of thousands in “marriage penalties.” The welfare system would benefit by fewer ...more »

IRS

Create a new box just like the one already on the tax forms that allow individuals to contribute to the presidential reelection fund--the new box would be "debt elimiation". All monies going to this would be to reduce and eventually eliminate the debt.

Currently, an SSI overpayment under $1000 can be automatically waived if the claimant just requests it. I understand that if a person appeals the overpayment, the cost to fight the appeal may outweigh the actual overpayment and would not be worth it, BUT the government should not automatically waive these. Today alone, I did 14 administrative waivers totaling $353; not alot of money but it all adds up! And this was ...more »

Eliminate Retroactive SSI

We should not be giving retroactive needs based benefits. Logically it makes no sense to give retroactive benefits for a program that is intended to meet CURRENT and basic needs. In addition, we could save agency time and money by not having to conduct pre-effectuation reviews. It takes a lot of agency time and money to develop the income and resources and living arrangements for retroactive benefits. We have to control ...more »

Please address concerns about management abuse

There are various examples where employees try to seek out assistance in order to alleviate very stressful situations with innapropriate management. Sometimes it is discrimation, other times is bulling, other times is just an issue with personality conflict or simply management acting innapropriately at work. If the agency continues to "brush" off these complaints by dismissing them quickly at the EEO levels, they are ...more »
