Introduction

Our FY 2009 PAR combines our annual performance report with our audited financial statements to provide full disclosure of our financial and programmatic operations.  The report provides a discussion of our programs and organization, how we benefit the public, and how we achieve our mission.  It also provides an analysis of our financial position and a discussion of systems and controls.  The PAR includes our financial statements, GPRA performance results, and information on anti-fraud activities, user fee charges, improper payments, and debt management.  It also includes the report on the audit of our financial statements and the Office of Inspector General Statement on SSA’s Major Management and Performance Challenges.  FY 2009 marks the twenty-third year that we have published audited financial statements and the sixteenth year that we have received an unqualified opinion on our financial statements.  For copies of the PAR, please contact ssa.par@ssa.gov.
