Introduction

Our FY 2012 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 our accomplishments and plans to achieve our mission.  It also provides an analysis of our financial position and a discussion of our systems and controls.  The PAR includes our financial statements, performance results, and information on entitlement reviews, the Office of the Inspector General’s anti-fraud activities, user fee charges, debt management, and improper payments.  It also includes the report on the audit of our financial statements and the Office of the Inspector General's Statement on SSA’s Major Management and Performance Challenges.  FY 2012 marks the twenty-sixth year that we published audited financial statements and the nineteenth year that we received an unqualified opinion on our financial statements.
