We spend a substantial about of money to pay pre-diem and hotel stays for out of area details, especially for the LDP Program where individuals do a four month detail to the regional offices . This is not necessary, in area details can be done, the only cost will be mileage for extra miles to drive to different offices.
We need to raise the earnings limit, this will create less overpayments and hardship on claimants on retirement benefits, $14160 is too little, $25,000 dollar limit would be more realistic. If we do this more individuals would work and pay into Social Security,, so it is a win win situation.
Save money by stopping all student benefits at age 18, this would save not only money but a lot of work due to benefits being terminated at age 18 and then having to be restarted because of attendance in high school. We are making children not want to graduate in a timely matter.
$255 dollars does not cover much and people would not miss this benefit and we could save a substantial amount of money.
