Parent Committee: Ways and Means Committee

The Subcommittee on Social Security handles all legislation and oversight related to the nation's Social Security system, which provides earned benefits to retirees, severely disabled workers and their families, widows and widowers, and children who have lost a parent. It oversees the Social Security Trust Funds, the contributions American workers and their employers make to the funds, and the financial health of the system. It monitors the administration of Social Security, including customer service at the Social Security Administration's nationwide network of field offices and toll-free telephone service; due process rights when applying for benefits; wait times for disability hearings; privacy protections and cybersecurity; and research and demonstration projects on retirement, disability, and related topics. Finally, the Subcommittee is involved when issues arise relating to the use, transmission, or protection of the Social Security number.
