SSA Fee Reduction Program

-- Dateline: June 21, 2016

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has implemented a pilot program that reduces fees (up to $250) for the production of agency information requested in matters to which SSA is not a party and has no program interest.  Please see the attached letter for details on the program, which continues until May 1, 2018; a copy has also been posted on dWeb under "Announcements."  Although the letter identifies "Federal Public Defenders" as the beneficiaries of the pilot, SSA's General Counsel has clarified for us that this program applies to all counsel appointed to CJA cases, not just FPDs.  Thank you for ensuring widest dissemination of this information and if you have any questions, please contact Lisa Guffey, Attorney Advisor-Program Operations Division, at (202) 502-3030
