Representative Payee Interfacing

There are instances that a claimant will be receiving T2 benefits for years and they go to file for SSI at a later date. When this is the case, especially for a child, the established payee may have been selected years ago on the MBR. Instead of having to due a "dummy representative payee application" it would be beneficial to add entitlements to in the ERPS system to show the existing payee on the new SSI record.

Date of payment

Please consider changing the day that checks are deposited to dates rather than “Wednesday’s”

Perhaps 1st, 7th, 14th and 21st

 

I don’t know if anyone else using the Day if the week system as a monthly payday and it’s very awkward

Claimant Form Idea

The idea I am submitting is not original. This idea and suggestion is one that has been voiced by plenty of others through the years. It is regarding claimant forms/questionnaires that we at DDS send on the majority of initial adult claims. ADLs and work history primarily. These required forms are a great source of delay and cause much additional work than should be done to accomplish this task. The FTC/FTR process ...more »

The calculators/estimators for benefits ...more »

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. I think it would be useful to have DPS grade GS-12, who handle different disability workloads, to provide inputs regarding data analysis and help in the mapping . It would be beneficial to the agency to have a working group with these selected DPS along with managers and other analysts. They can provide insights and useful feedback. ...more »
