Keep Social Security offices open

There should be a well-staffed Social Security office in every community. Registering is a complex matter, and errors often result in incorrect or delayed benefits. One-on-one assistance eliminates errors and makes sure people get the benefits they need.

Provide local offices for in-person assistance

At the Office for the Aging, we constantly have people coming in to ask us about Social Security benefits. We do not have that expertise, and refer people to the 1-800 number. But people tell us they can not get the answers they need by calling the 1-800 number or looking on-line. They want to discuss their individual situation with a real person one-on-one. There is no SSA office in out whole county, so many folks ...more »

Do not close field offices: open some that have been closed

Elderly people do not find navigating the web helpful and are the old fashioned type who like to speak to and look at a real human being. Social security benefit filing and benefit issues and Medicare are very complex. It is so unfair and unkind and unconscious to close these offices where citizens who pay taxes get real help and support.

COLA

We need to ensure that the Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) adequately reflect the living expenses of retirees so that seniors are better able to keep up with the rising costs of essential items, expecially health care.

Web-Based CDR System

Our office has discussed the benefit of a major upgrade to CDR2000, which is part of the dying breed of old "Microsoft Access" software. Obviously, our CDR workloads are increasing year by year. It is common for us to encounter claimants that have moved from one office's jurisdiction to another at some point during the CDR process, and we cannot view the other office's development in CDR2000. This can be a confusing ...more »

Medical CDR liason

Since we are over doubling our CDR quotas in the coming years, we should have a position similar to the AWIC but for Medical CDRs. We need a resource person who is familiar with the CDR process in the field offices. There should be atleast one in each area. The current expectations are unreasonable that are coming down from the AD's offices because they have not been involved in how timely this process takes.
