Upon Receipt



After reevaluating current instructions on mailing and emailing copies of Section 218 agreements and modifications, and in efforts to streamline the business process for efficiency, we updated the policy and procedure. These changes reduce the unnecessary mailing and storage of duplicate paper documents in multiple offices within Social Security, saving time and costs.
