Federal News Network: SSA board urges moving death records to Treasury to stem coronavirus payments to deceased

“Dead people are getting coronavirus stimulus payments, and a bipartisan group of lawmakers has asked the Treasury Department, IRS and Social Security Administration what they can do to stop it.”

“While improper payments remain a long-standing challenge for public-facing agencies, the Social Security Advisory Board on Thursday, following reports of pandemic funds going to the deceased, reiterated its recommendation to Congress that it shift the responsibility of federal death data collection from SSA to Treasury’s Do Not Pay portal to help stop payments to the deceased.”

“The Do Not Pay portal allows other agencies to check against it before issuing benefits, and already does some of the program integrity work done by SSA. Moving death data collection and dissemination to that portal, the board wrote, would reduce duplication and prevent improper payments…”

“The migration would be no small feat, and would likely take years to upgrade systems to store the death data at Treasury and transfer death reports directly reported to the Do Not Pay portal.” Read the full article here.
