[SSA Employee's Request for Change of Residency Designation]
B-257861: Feb 15, 1995
- Full Report:
A Social Security Administration (SSA) employee requested a change in his residency designation when he was assigned overseas, contending that SSA erred in designating the location of his last assignment as his place of residence, rather than his actual residence in another state. GAO held that SSA properly: (1) used the location of the employee's previous SSA assignment as his residence, since he was considered a local hire to whom a transportation agreement was not offered; and (2) refused to change the employee's residency designation, since he actually resided at the location of his previous assignment before being transferred overseas. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
