Social Security Welcomes its New Commissioner

" "Andrew M. Saul was sworn in today as the Commissioner of Social Security at the agency’s office in Washington, D.C. He will serve a six-year term that expires on January 19, 2025.

Commissioner Saul expressed his gratitude at being chosen to serve as the Commissioner of Social Security. “The Social Security programs touch the lives of almost every American – serving in this position is a tremendous privilege and an awesome responsibility,” said Commissioner Saul. “I am humbled by the opportunity to help the agency to deliver critical services to the American people.”

Commissioner Saul brings a vast amount of experience to the position. At the federal level, one of Commissioner Saul’s greatest achievements was his work with the Federal Thrift Investment Board (FTIB). In 2002, Commissioner Saul became Chairman of the FTIB, which administers the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). The TSP provides military and federal employees the opportunity to save for additional retirement security. Commissioner Saul led the board to modernize systems and restructure executive staff.  Through effective changes, he increased participation and reduced participant costs.

In addition to his federal service, Commissioner Saul has served and worked within numerous state and local governments, non-profit organizations, and private sector businesses. He started his career in the private sector, growing and managing two large publicly traded apparel chains for over 20 years. He served as Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York’s regional transportation system and the country’s largest public transportation network. He also served as Vice Chairman of the Mount Sinai Health System and Chairman of its Audit and Compliance Committee. In addition, he was a Trustee and Chairman of the Audit Committee of the National Gallery of Art. He formerly served as a board member of the United Jewish Appeal Federation of New York.

Commissioner Saul will be responsible for administering the Social Security retirement, disability and survivors insurance programs that pay over one trillion dollars annually in benefits to approximately 64 million beneficiaries, as well as the Supplemental Security Income program that provides cash assistance to more than 8 million people with limited income and resources. The agency has a national workforce of about 63,000 employees and 1,500 facilities across the country and around the world.

Commissioner Saul is from New York. He is a graduate of the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, and serves on its Board of Overseers. He and his wife of over 50 years, Denise, have two adult children and three grandchildren.

  1. Preserve Social Security against Republican forces trying to destroy it. I ,as with many Americans , am dependent on this income to survive. Unlike Republicans in the government I am not wealthy and need this source of income that I have paid into for over forty years. Wealthy Republicans are too self-serving to bother with the needs of the average hard working citizens. They think everyone is as wealthy and self-sufficient as they are. Unfortunately we are not and need these programs to survive.

  2. Got and idea??? How about take a few dollars way from the million air’s and give it to the people who only make lees than $1000 per month to bring them up to the $1000 per months per month???????? That way they won’t be hurt much and the millions making less than $1000 per month will get enough money to live on when you raise there retirements up to $1000. I only get $801 per month I can’t believe the other $200 coming form million air’s would hurt them????????? It would sure help me?????? I could even be able to pay a couple of bills per month???
    Any way just another idea???
    Thank you Ronald.

    • Social security was never meant to be all you get for retirement. At best it will be 40% of what you need. Everyone is responsible for saving money during their working years for their retirement. If you make the choice not to do that then please don’t expect others to give you money to make up for your lack of being responsible for your own life when you retired. Maybe you need to get a part time job to earn some extra money.

        • You need to wake up. I am no different than most. When my income just barely made it for me i did not buy booze, drugs, go out to restaurants, had a car that was a junker, no fancy clothes, did not go out and party, etc. But I still put aside money even if it was only $25 a month. I worked hard, proved myself to the companies I worked for and was able to get ahead a little bit at a time, while working two jobs at a time. Yes I worked for minimum wages when it was a lot less than it is now. I always looked for new jobs that I could advance myself and my income. I did not go to college but did get a GED.
          Every person has to decide what is important to them and live with their decisions and not expect others to give them handouts. There are government financial aid programs that are there to help all individuals.

  3. Proposed Message of the Public Trustee http://www.title24uscode.org/2020message.pdf

    The tax-loopholes, poverty traps, in-kind-support mechanisms (ISMs), home invasions, slash piles, budget cuts and accounting errors, disabling achievement of a profitable shoestring budget, federal budget surplus and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, must be abolished. Congress must authorize federal government officials 2.5% annual payroll growth, and finally exact the full 12.4% Old Age Survivor Disability Insurance (OASDI) Trust Funds payroll tax on the rich and state employees, on all their income. Adjustment of the contribution and benefit base in Sec. 230 of the Social Security Act under 42USC§430 is repealed and replaced with a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Trust Fund’, ‘To create in the Treasury a Federal SSI Trust Fund to end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030.’ For the record, Congress must also retroactively amend the effective DI tax rate to 2.1% (2018) in Sec. 201(b)(1)(T) of the Social Security Act under 42USC§401(b)(1)(T). To fulfill the SSI Trust Fund’s mission of ending poverty the Commissioner of Social Security must interpret the Cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in Sec. 215(i) of the Social Security Act under 42USC§415(i) right, to provide low-income beneficiaries with an automatic 3% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), while inflation continues to run between 2.5%-3% as it has since 1980. Even if the maximum benefit is not immediately sufficient to raise family income above the poverty line, benefits would not be subjected to attrition and theoretically beneficiaries would not be poor in the future. To sustain this automated, systematic, nationwide process to end poverty in the United States, Congress must amend the $7.25 an hour federal minimum wage since the Great Recession to $7.50 in 2019, $7.75 in 2020, $8.00 in 2021 and 3% more every year thereafter.’ in one final sentence at 29USC§206(a)(1)(D). The Unemployment Compensation (UC) program must abolish travel restrictions and ratify three International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions to insure contributor sick days, family vacations, childbirth and childcare, with three weeks annual Holidays with Pay Convention (Convention 132) of 1970, for new fathers and Workers with Family Responsibilities (Convention 156) of 1981, as extended without pay under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 Pub.L. 103–3 and most of all fourteen weeks Maternity Protection (Convention 183) of 2000.

    PS After the solstice I will be hiking in the mountains until after my 45th birthday on August 11. Just pay $2,000 a month to sign the 2019 Annual Report that contains my Message of the Public Trustee: Anthony J. Sanders, Hospitals & Asylums, title24uscode.org .

    PPS Alternatively, my father’s attorney has filed for a child benefit 50-80% of my father’s mandatory maximum benefit at 70. The whole purpose of my career, at my age of lowest incidence of disability 40-44, turns out to be to tax the rich to end child poverty by 2020.

    • I was given a raise then they deducted $200.00. how is that a raise! I’ve got a great idea, how about we charge the government interest on our money they are holding!

      • This social security theft, neglected by the Defense of Social Security Caucus of 2011, is not the worst theft low-income beneficiaries suffer. To turn a profit there is no alternative but to go homeless. For the homeless to avoid being road kill it is necessary to plead indigence, live in a wilderness, on a trail to the city in the winter, or just on a trail with resorts in the summer. Nonetheless, the only thing more reprehensible than Senator Sanders failure to compensate people for the embezzlement his Caucus condemned, is that actual theft/robbery by urinary tract infection, if I recall my $66 SSI supplement, or grandmothers $666 state retirement. As Public Trustee I will advocate for restitution of benefits, for all people whose assignment of benefits was infringed upon by what seems to be one incidence of toxic theft, otherwise known as robbery and first degree murder of my grandmother, after several years, for those not personally self-denied in writing to relieve Astrue Esq.’s crushing weight on the chest. In conclusion, as Public Trustee I would defend the initial and/or right assignment of benefits in accordance with Sec. 207 of the Social Security Act under 42USC407. This means I would file a class action for the state and federal beneficiaries denied compensation by the Defense of Social Security Caucus of 2011.

        Commissioner Andrew M. Saul is encouraged to email me regarding the Public Trustee position, using SSA bog privileges. I regret there will be some delay in my response time, due to the shortage of high-speed Internet on the longest wilderness trail in the world, Nonetheless, the purpose of appointing me Public Trustee is reproduce my accounting in the Annual Report, without having to take the time to prove that I am right at the Actuary’s every wrong, most significantly the OASDI tax rate, ex post facto 2.1% DI, as I have done, and can’t remember if that is January 2018 or 2019, off the top of my head. I won’t need my $66 SSI supplement back, if I get $2,000 a month for serving as the Public Trustee who proposes to tax the rich the full 12.4% OASDI tax on all their income, to end child poverty by 2020 and all poverty by 2030

  4. Help:
    Someone at the Social Security Administration, 1 Jamaica Center Plaza, Jamaica, New, York 11432 has been stealing from my Social Security Payments for over 5 years in the amount of $439.50 a month [“and now $464.50”] [and as of Jan 3, 2019, $500.50] and has stolen $24,979.50 as of this date.[06/17/19] and nobody wants to do anything about it. Why?
    Social Security Administration has no order from a Court for seizing any of my Payments, this act is criminal by its nature, and those performing this act are performing unlawful actions! They are in violation of the Law and my unalienable Rights.
    No civil action has been filed against me and no Judicial Warrant has been put against any of my property or my payments. Someone at the Social Security Administration is just plain “stealing” from my payments and is causing me great damage. Please stop this theft from my payments and return my $24,979.50 that has been stolen from me so I can pay my bills and get needed medication. .
    Why are you all trying to kill me?????

    • I have heard other stories like this in the social security office and very little seems to be able to be done about it, and stopping it is very difficult. This should be given a priority!

  5. Glad to have you aboard. Hope you are better than the last person and can address the following:
    1. Will those in power screw around with our social security that we have paid into?
    2. Revision of antiquated rules regarding OUR money and how it is distributed. Ex. It’s stupid that I have to be held at the amount of money I drew at age 62 forever. The amount should rise to the full amount I am due once I reach age 65. Also more needs to be done to inform retirees of this rule when you contact social security by any means!!
    3. Transparency and full disclosure is needed regarding the information received daily about proposed changes of social security benefits by our current corrupt administration that has labeled the paid into benefit as a “handout” .
    4. Why are we short changed and not paid for all our employment history instead of flipping quarters? Any shortage is not our problem. We gave no permission for funds we paid every pay period to be used by Congress as their own personal ATM!!!

  6. A simple request, Purge the system, how many decease people are still collecting checks, How many people that are claiming disability with their checks going to a payee get the idea.

  7. Please pay my beneficiaries of ssa income online by deposit direct transfer to my account bangkok bank in new york brand service for me in Thailand claim,and used IAT system for exchange to be thai bath in my account holding ,now for my authority beneficiaries of retirement plan.gov

  8. I am supposed to live on $750 SS + SSI per month. $124 food stamps. I am starving and cannot pay my bills. HELP!

  9. You forgot to mention that Andrew Saul has no qualifications except for serving on the board of a right-wing think tank that wants to destroy Social Security.

    . Like everyone appointed by grifterTrump, this agency head despises the agency he has now been appointed to manage.

    because the bottom-linehe goal of the wingnnuts is to destroy the social safety net, and the earned benefits we’ve paid into all our working lives.

    But we get that you all aren’t allowed to actually tell the truth about your new boss. Fortunately, some of us do our homework.

  10. Congratulations to a professional with vast and relevant experiences in diverse fields of management that only augurs well for the future of Social Security and the benefits provided for all American workers

    6401 Security Blvd.
    Baltimore, MD 21235

    Dear Social Security Administration, Commissioner Andrew Saul, or To Whom It May Concern:
    My name is Ben Simmons. Firstly, I would like to state that, in truth I would much rather be writing a letter of compliment, instead of the following complaint against one agent, a Mr. Randy Hollenbeck (which is why it has taken me a while to send this letter to you).

    However, on the Wednesday of January 9th 2019, I spoke with a social security agent by the name of Randy Hollenbeck (of the Selinsgrove, PA office, at 150 Susquehanna Valley Mall Dr, Selinsgrove, PA 17870), over the phone, regarding a request that I had received from my biological nephew (Newton Eugene Pittullo, who has a medically diagnosed schizophrenic condition) asking me to become his representative payee. I asked the agent what I had to do to satisfy my nephews request, and Mr. Hollenbeck then informed me what the process entailed.

    (Again, the truth is that I quite honestly did not want to be anyone’s representative payee. Newton had asked me several times before, and up to this point, I had always declined).

    Mr. Hollenbeck stated that I would need a letter signed by Newton’s doctor, stating that he was not capable of managing his own finances, and that the letter should be faxed to the number at the local SS office (where Mr. Hollenbeck works). I in turn contacted my nephew and relayed Mr. Hollenbeck’s instructions to him, Newton in turn relayed the info to his doctor.

    On Thursday January 10th, Newton had the letter faxed from the hospital he was in at the time (Lenox Hill Hospital in New York). That same Thursday when I arrived at the SS office in Selinsgrove, Mr. Hollenbeck informed me, that Newton had neglected to have the doctor sign the letter that was faxed, and as a result, it had to be signed by his doctor and faxed again. Subsequently the issue was addressed, and the letter was signed and faxed a second time.

    The next day, Friday January 11th, I returned to the SS office, signed in, and was called to the window by a woman, I informed her of the fax, and she retrieved it. Then things started to take a strangely negative turn downhill. She was short in her tone and told me to wait a moment, and brought Mr. Hollenbeck to her window, at which time he started to tell me that there was already someone on file as Newton’s payee, (which surprised me because I thought that since Newton had asked me to be his payee, that he did not have one and obviously he needed one). Not being privy to his file, I had no idea that there was already someone in place, so, naturally I was curious to know who the payee was. When I asked that question, Mr. Hollenbeck’s tone of voice became rudely condescending, as he began to raise his voice in an extremely arrogant and domineering tone, while telling me with a ‘raised’ voice that there was “a better candidate on file than you are” (and kept repeating “there is a better candidate on file”. He was downright nasty). He also kept insisting that I was “asking to be the payee”, (when the truth is that “I was asked”) to take on the responsibility, and I finally reluctantly said yes to my nephew, (which is why I was there in the first place). Mr. Hollenbeck would not listen or pause so I could speak, he seemed to personalize the conversation as he spoke over me. He then proceeded to accuse me of purposely trying to withhold the fact (or knowledge) that there was already a payee on file, when I in truth had no knowledge of that fact. He seemed to be accusing me of attempting to defraud Social Security by trying to illegitimately become my nephew’s payee, (his attitude was alluding to the idea that I could get a hold of the monies for my own personal use). I must say, I was quietly humiliated and silently insulted.

    However, before I left, (in an attempt to leave in peace), I extended Mr. Hollenbeck the figurative and proverbial “olive branch”, in the form of a handshake, as I walked away in great embarrassment. Needless to say, his behavior was highly unprofessional and lead to a degrading experience for me.
    The feeling was just short of a “tail between one’s legs” kind of experience. In other words, total embarrassment!

    Hopefully, at the very least someone can bring this to his attention for some sorely needed periodic self-examination. And I would certainly be interested to know what steps will be taken to address Mr. Hollenbeck’s unacceptable behavior toward me.

    Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter, as I await your reply.
    Sincerely,

    Mr. Ben Simmons

  30. Social Security needs more employees. It is understaffed and undertrained. This is a vital program for everyday Americans and the service is appalling. The online services suck. Supposed texts from SS to my phone to log in were not delivered.
    I stopped social security after starting it and repaid the money. 18 months later they start it up again with no word from me! I get a letter from them meant for some woman in Louisiana. I sent it to her via snail mail knowing that if I sent it back to the Social Security offices she would never get it again. All her personal info was in it.
    My sister, a widow, had questions about retiring at 62. She got five different answers from five different calls. This is unconscionable.

  33. Sir: we tried to set up our sons SS acct. He has had a TBI and we were notified last Monday at our SS office in Paducah, KY that he will receive SSDI. Due to the TBI, he must have someone help him with his $$. He chose me, his mother. We couldn’t set his acct up on line so we called today. After approx 3 mins of prompts, I’m now on hold for 45 mins per the recording!! Really!?!?! Is that the best service that can be provided?? I’m not impressed!! Rediculous!! I hope you guys can figure this out n fix the problem.

  34. I am a recently retired American Citizen. I was invited by Social Security to apply for early retirement when I was 62. I refused to apply.
    When I turned 64 in 2018, Social Security Mgr. persuaded to apply for early retirement. A week later I received a letter from Social Security informing me that they cannot pay me anything because :”YOU DIDNOT PROVE THAT YOU WERE 62 YO…”

    i CONTACTED SEVERAL POLICE STATIONS AND SEVERAL LIEUTENANTS IF THE SHERIFF DEPARTMENT. TO FILE CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST SSA.

    I was told that SSA is stupid but “STUPIDITY” IS NOT A CRIME.

    SSA sent me a barrage of letters just weeks later demanding payment for MEDICARE even though they said I am not 62 yo yet.

    I filed CRIMINAL REPORT AGAINST SSA FOR FRAUD, EMBEZZLEMENT, EXTORTION AND EMOTIONAL DISTRESS TERRORISM ELDER ABUSE ENDANGERMENT ATTEMPTED MURDER AND DOZEN OTHER CHARGES.
    THE Elmonte police department took a report but refused to investigate.

    I have not withdrawn the criminal charges against SSA and will pursue those charges. I look forward to an investigation against SSA. I also demand a response by the new commissioner.

  35. Mr. Saul, I have documents to mail to you and I must have a mailing address. What address should I use?
    Sincerely Laura L. Bergstrom

    • Hi Laura. Thanks for contacting us. For your security we do not have access to your personal information on this forum. Typically, when we need information from you for an application, we provide you with a postage paid envelope addressed to your local office for you to mail back your documents. If you are not sure who contacted you, please call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. If can also find the address to your local Social Security office.

  36. The Ticket to work Program is a Set Up and this System has failed me! I have children and I’m losing everything! No one explained anything correctly or even willing to help Us that try???

  37. SSA is taking my survivor benefits because I made $25,000 instead of $19,000 last year. It is unforgivable that you take money that does not belong to you. My husband worked hard for that money. Now, I will not be able to pay my bills for the month and will be behind. Thanks a lot.

    • Hi Kin. If you are younger than full retirement age during all of 2018, we must deduct $1 from your benefits for each $2 you earn above the limit of $17,040 (or $1,420 per month). Unfortunately, but for your security, we do not have access to personal information in this venue. You can call our toll free number, 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask to speak with one of our representatives, Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Or, you may contact your local Social Security office. Also, here is some information on what to do if you have an overpayment. For more information on this subject, please see our publication titled “How Work Affects Your Benefits.” We hope this helps.

  38. Tommorrow I will file my fifth lawsuit in Federal Court against your agency..1) Gender discrimination 2) Class discrimination 3) denial of travel violation of Liberty 4 ) breech of contract .. The newest litagation has to do with your agency’s willingness to take orders from Dyke feminist Hillary Rotten Clinton and remove employment records from my work history. Collusion
