WASHINGTON – The following is a statement from Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works

“This week, two unions representing Social Security Administration (SSA) employees — AFGE Council 220 and the Association of Administrative Law Judges — announced votes of no confidence in the agency’s leadership. In surveys, members of both unions expressed an overwhelming lack of confidence in Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul and Deputy Commissioner David Black.

These votes come amidst an ongoing effort from Social Security advocates and beneficiaries urging Joe Biden to remove Saul, Black, and Deputy Commissioner Mark Warshawsky (the apparent mastermind behind an ongoing regulatory war on disability beneficiaries) on day one of his administration. Our petition calling on Biden to clean house at SSA has nearly 225,000 signatures.

Social Security beneficiaries and SSA employees agree: Donald Trump’s political appointees are undermining our Social Security system, and Biden must remove them immediately.”
