Acting Commissioner Obtains More Time to Submit Reopening Plan

All federal agencies were required to submit their plans to reopen by July 19, 2021. Still, the Biden appointed acting commissioner of the SSA, Kilolo Kijakazi, stated in a July 20 letter that the White House has given her more time. Kijakazi has not provided a proposed reopening date. She stated, “I take this effort seriously, and we have been given a little more time to finalize our plan so that I can ensure it is informed by our employees and stakeholders. Therefore, I will share more information soon.”

As the SSA continues to adapt to changes due to COVID-19 and a new Commissioner we will keep you up to date with the latest developments.  If you have additional questions, reach out to Viner Disability Law.
