     Unlike most appointees, the Commissioner of Social Security can remain in office after his or her official term ends until a replacement is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Michael Astrue's predecessor did not stay in her job once her official term ended. There's been no announcement but Michael Astrue may do so. By the way, the Deputy Commissioner can also remain in office until a successor is confirmed if she chooses.
