Briefing on Social Security Administration (SSA) Rep Payee National Instant Criminal Background System (NICS)
June 9, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 am EDT

In response to President Obama’s Executive Action announcement on January 4, 2016, the Social Security Administration announced the following Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) titled Implementation of the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 on Thursday, May 5, 2016.

CCD Rights and Social Security Taskforces are working on comments for this NRPM that will be sent out to civil and disability rights advocates to use as a guide to send in their own comments. The TFs are also hosting a briefing to discuss our concerns with the Executive Action and the NPRM. We will have a discussion with civil, disability and human rights organizations who plan to submit comments. We encourage all to attend to get this important information and to be a part of this conversation.
