The Social Security Administration (SSA) is the Nation’s primary income security agency. It administers the federal retirement, survivors, and disability insurance programs, as well as the program of supplemental security income (SSI) for the aged, blind, and disabled, and performs certain functions with respect to the black lung benefits program. SSA also directs the aid to the aged, blind and disabled in Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
The SSA is divided into four main offices with seven divisions. The Deputy Commissioner for Policy heads the Office of Policy, sets the agenda of the office, represents the office at the policymaking levels of the Administration, and is the main point of contact between the office and the policy community. The Office of Policy comprises three main components: the Office of Retirement Policy, the Office of Disability and Income Assistance Policy, and the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Statistics.
The Office of Retirement Policy provides policy analysis and development in the areas of Social Security reform and Social Security retirement and survivors benefits.
The Office of Disability and Income Assistance Policy develops options and provides policy analysis to improve the information base for the development of policy for the Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs.
The Office of Research, Evaluation, and Statistics conducts research and evaluations and sponsors three Retirement Research Centers to study the effects of Social Security and income assistance programs, and proposed changes in those programs, on individuals, the economy, and program solvency.
The Division of Earnings Statistics and Analysis prepares and analyzes statistical data pertaining to employment, earnings, and employer classification.
The Division of Economic Research studies the interactions between Social Security and the economy and assesses the effects of Social Security and SSI on economic well-being.
The Division of Information Resources disseminates OP statistical and analytical material through publications and the Internet. Its responsibilities include editorial review, design and graphics, distribution of publications, and promoting the availability and use of SSA research and statistics.
The Division of Evaluation conducts SSA’s policy evaluation activities and ensures that the evaluations are technically appropriate, professionally sound, policy relevant, and timely.
The Division of Program Studies undertakes cross-national data collection and research on social security programs, public and private pension systems, and income maintenance programs worldwide.
The Division of RSDI Statistics and Analysis prepares and analyzes statistical data on beneficiaries and payments under the Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance programs.
The Division of SSI Statistics and Analysis prepares and analyzes statistical data on beneficiaries and payments under the Supplemental Security Income program.
