Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Social Security Administration's (SSA) new interim final rule on determining disability for a child under age 18 for the Supplemental Security Income program. GAO noted that: (1) this rule would implement the childhood disability provisions of sections 211 and 212 of Public Law 104-193, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, which provide a new definition of disability for children, mandate changes to the evaluation process for children's disability claims and continuing disability reviews, and require that disability redeterminations be performed for 18-year-olds eligible as children in the month before they attain age 18; and (2) SSA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
