Supplemental Measures and Targets
Executive Order 13520 gives the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) authority to determine if certain agency programs are high-error. Based on OMB guidelines, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program is high-error, which means that it requires more frequent measures and targets. In compliance with the additional requirements that come with this determination, we have established the following supplemental measures and targets for the SSI program:
|FY 2013 SSI - Supplemental Measures and Targets|
|Type of Error||Targets||Current Status||Next Status Update|
|Overpayment/Underpayments due to a Change that Affects Payment Amount or Eligibility|
|Cause: The recipient fails to report a change that affects payment amount or eligibility.
Program Savings: We estimate every dollar spent on SSI redeterminations yields better than $6 in program savings over 10 years, including savings accruing to Medicaid (as of the FY 2013 President's Budget).
|By September 30, 2013, complete the budgeted number of 2,622,000 SSI non-disability redeterminations.||As of February 2013, we completed over 1,067,000 SSI redeterminations.||March 31, 2013|
|Overpayment due to Unreported Wages|
|Cause: Recipients fail to report their new or increased wages.
Error Amount: $589 million (13.8 percent of all overpayment deficiency dollars) in FY 2011.
|By the end of FY 2013, increase the monthly use of SSITWR by 5 percent above the usage in September 2012.||In February 2013, we received over 42,000 successful wage reports via SSITWR.||March 31, 2013|
