Introduction

For fiscal year (FY) 2013, we chose to produce an Agency Financial Report (AFR) in place of a consolidated Performance and Accountability Report.  We will integrate our FY 2013 Annual Performance Report with our FY 2015 Congressional Budget Justification and Annual Performance Plan, which we plan to release in February 2014.

Our FY 2013 AFR provides information enabling the Congress, the President, and the public to assess our stewardship over the financial resources entrusted to us and our performance as an organization.  The report provides a discussion of our programs, organization, and how we benefit the public; a summary of our accomplishments during the year and our plans to achieve our mission; and a discussion of the challenges we face going forward.  The AFR also provides an analysis of our financial position and a discussion of our systems and controls.  The report includes our annual audited financial statements required under the Chief Financial Officers Act, high-level performance results, information on entitlement reviews, the Office of the Inspector General’s anti-fraud activities, user fee charges, debt management, and improper payments.  It also includes the report on the audit of our financial statements and the OIG’s Statement on SSA’s Major Management and Performance Challenges.  FY 2013 marks the twenty-seventh year that we published audited financial statements and the twentieth year that we received an unmodified opinion on our financial statements.

We divided the online AFR into the following sections:
