A Veterans Day Message From Social Security’s Commissioner

We live in the greatest Nation in the world. We have many generations of veterans to thank for that. I have the great fortune to have David Black—a 30 year Army veteran—as my Deputy Commissioner. Working with David reminds me that selfless sacrifice and excellent leadership are often characteristics of veterans. Thus, I am pleased that so many veterans decide to continue their service by coming to work at SSA. Many of our employees have family members who are serving—we know you, too, make sacrifices and we thank you.

As the world grows ever smaller, we are exposed to more information about how our country compares to others. For me, these comparisons call to mind our freedom. Our veteran employees and the veterans who come to our agency for help ensure that this liberty continues for us and work to ensure that people in other parts of the world may also experience it. Please thank these heroes and treat them well.

I love this country and I am eternally grateful to our veterans. Have a safe holiday.

  1. “All gave some and some gave all” always reminds me that you don’t have to look far to find someone who is suffering in some way by serving our country.
    Thank you all! 🇺🇸

    • I agree! Much of the suffering of those that have survived are due to the unfulfilled promises of the federal government! EX: Increased pharmeceutical costts for elderly retired veterans on fixed incomes due to tricare increases. The current cola does not keep up with inflation! Thatis why federal employees use the employment cost index for their inflation indicator for raises!

  3. Mr. Andrew Saul

    As an Army Veteran of 20 years and Retired Civilian of 21.5 years, I just want to Thank You.

    Sincerely
    Thomas Smetana

  4. To all my brothers and sisters and their family’s, I hope to see you at the Veterans Day parade to honor those who have served and are serving today and tomorrow.
    God bless us all 🇺🇸

  5. I have a neighbor friend who is a Vet whose been waiting over a year to have a surgical procedure done. He had to come to our house late at night and use one of my catheters so he could pass his urine. The VA keeps putting him off with cancellations. Lousy care on his behalf. As a Vet myself I stay clear of the VA. Would rather use my Medicare and get the care I need. Not so great a country for VA services or health care in general. My neighbor will be lucky if he doesn’t damage his kidneys or bladder before he is cared for. Just saying.

  6. You just eliminated telework for thousands of veterans who work for you on a whim, with no consultation with their labor representatives, and refuse to share any data you used to make this decision. I bet David Black still gets to work from home though. That’s nice of you to let him.

  7. I am a US Army veteran. My father was captured in Vietnam in 1974 on the way Goals of the United States and was taken out of the United States When I came to know the bitter truth of my life and story, I am a US Army veteran. Also, my father was captured by a military commander in Vietnam in 1974, then died when I was 3 years old and I moved out with the United States with another family to pursue goals and honor the United States of Truth. My life was spent on the road to transition for the United States. For years, my wife was an Army lieutenant and died in 2014-2015, where I wandered outside the United States..
    I am the heir to 20% of Stock one business company that deprives me of all resources and even its namethey even stole my identity and financial documents, including cards and a huge amount of prize money that I had won but hid. That’s because my wife was in the management and investment cycle and I was confident in everything but
    I don’t want to tell a story, to tell the truth. My story is more bitter than Oliver tourist

  8. Please ask David Black if he remember the Pentagon paper explaining the acceptable casualty rate for any given operation? Always wondered if my name was on the acceptable list. Just my thoughts, have a great Veterans day, Jim

  9. I had heard OIG found some errors in payment calculations. Is this true or hype? How do I get my payment history reviewed and recalculated if this is true?
    As a former military wife I, too, applaud the service of vets and send my sincere thanks, also.

  10. We have not received any reports about our Veterans affairs and Retirement 401(k reports of my father’s SSN information and we need your support and your help to give us more information about our future life and my father’s SSN information and our credit report

  11. Dear sr
    I need your support and your help to give us more information about my future life and my father’s SSN information and my credit report and my account bank because we never received any money until now

  12. How come a foreigner can come to this country and receive disability and not pay one red cent into it but the American people have got to fight for what is rightfully thiers like myself. I suffer from severe back problems and Lupus on top of that four different types of arthritis and suffer from chronic pain every single day. I have been fighting since 2012 and have had only two hearings total it amazes me how our own Government treats the people that put you guy’s in office. I think it’s time for you to work for us. And I am still waiting for a decision on my case.

  13. I hurt my back in the military, however they lost my paper work. I have a degenerate disk ,bugging disk L3, L4 and a S1. I’ve been fighting them sence 2012. I’ve done physical therapy and it didn’t help. I try working, however I throw my back out and I’m down for 5 to 7 days.

  14. Dear Commissioner Saul:

    Please sign and pass by Thanksgiving the 2020 Annual Report of the Supplemental Income Program: Letter of Intent HA-20-11-19 http://www.title24uscode.org/ssi2020.pdf

    Dear Madam Speaker, Mr. President:

    To end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030.

    A BILL

    To repeal the Adjustment to Contribution Base in Sec. 230 of the Social Security Act under 42USC§430 and replace it with: SSI Trust Fund. There is created in the Treasury a Supplemental Security Income Trust Fund to end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030.

    To overrule the 2.37% DI tax rate for 2018 and amend the effective DI tax rate to 2.05% (2018), 1.95% (2019), 1.91% or 2.0% (2020) in Sec. 201(b)(1)(T)(U)(V) of the Social Security Act under 42USC§401(b)(1)(T)(U)(V) with data from the 2019 Annual Report.

    To make a concerted effort to end poverty Congress must amend the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to ‘$7.50 in 2020 and 3% more every year thereafter.’ under 29USC§206(a)(1)(D). The Labor Secretary is tasked with estimating the cost to unemployment contributors of 6 months maternity protection or sabbatical every ten years and 3 weeks annual holiday/sick pay.

    To prevent federal revenue loss and economic depression the Treasurer must terminate and Congress repeal Withholding of income tax on the wages of non-resident aliens under 26USC§1441 phobia.

    To amend the due date of the Annual Report from April 1, April’s Fool Day to June 20-21, Summer Solstice, in Sec. 1161 of the Social Security Act under 42USC§1320c-10, and expect to receive the first consolidated Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Social Security Administration.

    To charge Medicaid prices for all and delete Medicare you may be b(k)illed letter hyperinflation.

    Be it enacted in the House and Senate Assembled
