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.
