Save 4 - 6 million annually. Reduce Social Security Printing, Mail Prep and Postage of the annual SS Retirement & Benefit summary reports to the public. Current cost estimates indicate Document Printing at $22 per 1,000 ($2.5 million); Mail Preparation Folding and Inserting or Stuffing $5 per 1,000 ($575,000); Envelope purchases $20 per 1,000 ($2 million); Postage $ .42 each (2.5 million). These are real cost that could easily be saved. NFC is eliminating their mailing of pay statements so this should be easy to get approved.
