Share this article Share Social Security is the most expensive social security program in the world, according to a report from the National Consumer Law Center.
The report, which was released Monday, says the cost of the program is more than double the annual cost of a middle-class worker earning $40,000 a year.
Social Security is one of the biggest expenses in the United States, costing the federal government more than $3 trillion per year.
It covers about 18 million Americans, or more than 5 percent of the population.
If you’ve never heard of the federal Social Security program, you’re not alone.
It’s called the Social Security Administration.
It is the government agency responsible for distributing Social Security benefits to beneficiaries, but it is not part of the U.S. government.
The program is run by the Social Safety Net program, which is the part of Social Security that does most of the money.
That means the system is not administered by the federal agency responsible to make sure benefits are distributed to eligible people.
“The Social Security administration and the Social Workers Office of the Social Secretary administer the program,” the report states.
A new report by the National Consumers League says the program has been plagued with fraud in recent years, and is understaffed.
About 40 percent of Social Workers offices are full or nearly full, and there is a backlog of cases, the report says.
One worker at a branch office said the office was already full when the fraud began, according the report.
Another worker said the number of cases that had been filed had gone from 15 to 30 a week, the NCLC said.
More than 1,300 workers in the Social Services Office of Social Services were not eligible to receive benefits, the company said.
The worker also said there were problems with the Social Worker’s office and the agency had not communicated with them.
Other workers said they had received a phone call from the Social Service office about cases, but had not received the case number.
Many workers told the report they believed the Social Administration was failing to communicate with them about the fraud, and the fraud had been going on for a long time.
They said they believed they were not receiving their payments, and that they had to go to other offices to get their money.
“The program is an absolute joke,” one worker told the NCLA.
When the report was released, Social Security Administrator John D. Husted said in a statement that the system was “understaffed, undersupplied and underfunded,” and the system’s benefits had not been adjusted in 20 years.
Husted said that the report showed that “there are serious flaws in the system.”
“I have worked with my colleagues to address those deficiencies and continue to work hard to improve the system for all,” he said.
The Social Service agency said it is working with the Federal Trade Commission to address the issues.
We will work with the commission to ensure that the fraud is prevented and that fraud is detected and corrected, said the agency in a written statement.
