On January 20, 2017, I was honored to become the Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration. Starting with Social Security 41 years ago as a summer aide, the vital mission of this agency has always fueled my passion for public service. Yesterday, the Government Accountability Office, who is responsible for monitoring the timelines for vacancies in certain Federal government positions, determined that a limitation of 300 days applied to the Acting Commissioner. Out of an abundance of caution, the agency had already taken steps in November 2017 to ensure that agency operations continue uninterrupted.
Moving forward, I will continue to lead the agency from my position of record, Deputy Commissioner of Operations. Throughout my career, I have learned that position titles come and go, but what truly matters is the people we serve every day. Beyond the change in title, there will be no impact in our service to the American public. Now, as always, I look forward to continuing to focus on the mission of the agency. ...What steps were those that Social Security took in November 2017?
