This schedule reflects a series of proposals. They include
a proposal that would provide that the month of entitlement
for disability benefits can be no earlier than six months prior
to the month of application, which would synchronize the
treatment of retroactive disability and retirement benefits.
A proposal would provide that any retroactive Title II benefits be paid with the next scheduled monthly check, which
would simplify the check payment system.
A proposal would lower to 16 the age at which full-time
school attendance is a condition of entitlement for Social Security child’s benefits to encourage children to stay in school.
The final proposal would establish a mandatory system for
collecting data on pension income from non-covered State and
local employment. The proposal would eliminate the current
self-reporting burden on individuals and will improve payment accuracy.

The Disability Insurance (DI) program provides monthly
cash benefits for disabled workers who have not yet attained
their normal retirement age, and for their dependents. In
2007, Treasury made a refund to the DI trust fund due to
overpayment of voluntary income tax withholding. A transfer
from the OASI trust fund was made to the DI trust fund
to reimburse the DI trust fund for payments made to certain
dually entitled beneficiaries.

This schedule reflects a series of proposals. They include
a proposal that would provide that the month of entitlement
for disability benefits can be no earlier than six months prior
to the month of application, which would synchronize the
treatment of retroactive disability and retirement benefits.
A proposal would provide that any retroactive Title II benefits be paid with the next scheduled monthly check, which
would simplify the check payment system.
A proposal would lower to 16 the age at which full-time
school attendance is a condition of entitlement for Social Security child’s benefits to encourage children to stay in school.
A proposal would establish a mandatory system for collecting data on pension income from non-covered State and
local employment. The proposal would eliminate the current
self-reporting burden on individuals and will improve payment accuracy.
The final proposal would replace the existing complicated
offset with a uniform offset for DI beneficiaries also receiving
workers’ compensation. The proposal would limit the length
of the offset to not more than five years.

The Limitation on Administrative Expenses account provides resources for the SSA to administer the OASI and DI
programs, the SSI program, the Special Benefits for Certain
World War II Veterans program, and certain health insurance
(including prescription drug) functions for the aged and disabled.
The request for additional funding for continuing disability
reviews builds on SSA’s success in reducing program costs
by ensuring that only individuals still too disabled to work
continue to receive benefits. Continuing disability reviews are
a proven investment, yielding $10 in lifetime program savings
for every $1 spent. The additional funding requested also
provides resources to increase the number of redeterminations
of eligibility processed under title XVI of the Social Security
Act. Redeterminations are also a proven investment, yielding
$7 in lifetime program savings for every $1 in additional
funding spent by ensuring that SSI recipients are receiving
the correct benefit amount based on non-medical factors of
eligibility. The language for the additional funding permits
two uses beyond continuing disability reviews and redeterminations. Up to $40 million may be spent on initiatives
to improve the disability process and up to $34 million may
be spent on initiatives to improve the asset verification process, provided that these initiatives are as cost-effective as
SSI redeterminations. If there are no initiatives that meet
these criteria, the funding will be used for additional continuing disability reviews and redeterminations.
Full funding of these cost increases and new enforcement
investments is important. The Administration is proposing
to fund them as contingent appropriations. To ensure full
funding of continuing disability reviews and redeterminations,
the Administration proposes to employ a budget enforcement
mechanism that allows for an adjustment by the Budget Committees to the section 302(a) allocation to the Appropriations
Committees found in the concurrent resolution on the budget.
In addition, the Administration will seek to establish statutory spending limits, as defined by section 251 of the Balanced
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, and to
adjust them for this purpose. To ensure full funding of the
cost increases, either of these adjustments would be permissible only if the base level for continuing disability reviews
and redeterminations was funded at $264 million and the
use of the funds was clearly restricted to the specified purpose. The maximum allowable adjustment to the 302(a) allocation and/or the statutory spending limit would be $240 million for 2009 (see the Budget Reform Proposals chapter in
the Analytical Perspectives volume).
