From a recent Social Security Emergency Message
The Social Security Administration
has asked Abt Associates and Mathematica Policy Research (the
surveyors) to conduct a survey to learn about the work experiences of
people receiving Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. The survey
is part of SSA’s Benefit Offset National Demonstration (BOND). From
January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015, the
surveyors will contact approximately 22,600 SSDI participants. Some of
these beneficiaries will be BOND participants and some will not. The
surveyors will ask them about their and their family members’ work,
health and education status, and about their attitudes toward work and
their health. They will also ask whether they have worked with a
benefits counselor recently.
The surveyors will ask the
beneficiaries to complete a survey. The survey responses will provide
information on SSDI beneficiaries’ attitudes and efforts toward work.
Beneficiary participation in the
survey is voluntary. The survey will take approximately 50 minutes to
complete. Participants will receive a $25 incentive payment for
participation. Participation will not affect receipt of benefits from
By the way, Social Security's "Emergency Messages"
seldom deal with actual emergencies. It's just a medium for conveying information to the field.
