SS Equation

There is a large amount of data available regarding the different models (high cost, low cost, intermediate cost) as well as many of the main variables (mortality, fertility, immigration), but nothing shows all of the factors coming together (including claim age, tax rate, taxable income, etc).

Create a disability data analysis and mapping working group

I work in one of the Disability Processing Branch (DPB) . Some of us worked on fraud cases.

MER fee dropdown in DGS

In my region, ODAR is responsible for requesting medical records rather than going through DDS. As this is the case it would be nice to have the fee schedules for requesting MER added as a drop down in the form rather than typing in the information especially when ordering from other states. Many do not know how to find the fee schedules online let alone word the information about the fee. The drop down could be identified ...more »
