For the past 2 years the Social Security Administration has had 2 very important openings. The Deputy Commisioner is Vacant and the Chief of Staff position, although in all fairness the chief of staff position does have someone in the acting position.
3 out of the top 9 positions in the Social Security Administration are *acting in the position with 1 full vacancy.
For a system that is fastly approaching default, is this wise to keep these positions open? Who are being considered for these positions and are they able to help turn Social security around?
