The CCD Social Security Task Force focuses on disability policy issues in the Title II disability programs and the Title XVI Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The SSI and Title II cash benefits, along with the related Medicaid and Medicare benefits, are the means of survival for millions of individuals with severe disabilities. They rely on SSA to promptly and fairly adjudicate their applications for disability benefits and to handle many other actions critical to their well-being. The Social Security Task Force’s policy agenda focuses on:

  • Ensuring that the impact on people with disabilities is considered and their interests are protected in Social Security and SSI policy debates.
  • Advocating that SSA’s administrative budget be adequately funded so that SSA has sufficient resources for personnel and service needs.
  • Monitoring proposed changes to the disability claims process.
  • Advocating for legislation, regulations, and policy changes to improve, simplify, and update the Social Security and SSI disability programs, including work incentives.
  • Maximizing employment opportunities for current and future disability beneficiaries while also doing no harm to existing critical income supports.

CCD SSTF FY25 SSA Funding
The undersigned organizations of the Consortium for Constituents with Disabilities’ (CCD) Social Security Task Force urge you to fully fund the President’s budget request of $15.4 billion for SSA’s FY 2025 administrative budget, and to provide sustained increased funding going forward until SSA’s spending authority reaches 1.2 percent of annual benefits paid. This increased funding is essential in order to ensure that SSA has the resources it needs to improve customer service and address staffing levels that have reached an all-time low.
