Paper With That Statement? | Office of Inspector General

without comments

SSA’s return to hard-copy statements suggests that some types of communication still need to be mailed. Do you agree? Or, as broadband expands, can most communications eventually move online for convenience and cost savings? What types of statements do you prefer to receive by mail? Are there statements you prefer to get online?

Misguided At Best

Observation – the amount of time, effort, energy, and money being spent to count, report, threshold, penalize, and assess vs making mailing easier, delivering faster, and providing better service is astounding, unfortunate, incredible, and leaves me shaking my head on regular basis.

Common sense?  Return on Investment?  Simplification?   Service?

US Postal SERVICE.  Need to refocus on the service aspect.

“The United States Postal Service shall be operated as a basic and fundamental service provided to the people by the Government of the United States, authorized by the Constitution, created by Act of Congress, and supported by the people. The Postal Service shall have as its basic function the obligation to provide postal services to bind the Nation together through the personal, educational, literary, and business correspondence of the people. It shall provide prompt, reliable, and efficient services to patrons in all areas and shall render postal services to all communities. The costs of establishing and maintaining the Postal Service shall not be apportioned to impair the overall value of such service to the people.”
