Informing Social Security's Process for Financial Capability Determination

With support from SSA, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a committee to evaluate SSA’s capability determination process. In pursuit of that goal, the committee reviewed the relevant professional literatures in several languages, heard testimony from researchers who study the capability determination process and from persons directly involved with it, considered existing assessment tools and their applicability to this process, looked at comparable programs in the public and private sectors in Canada and the United States, and obtained background information and data from SSA on the operation of its system.
