Update on Death Master File and Social Security Death Index Legislation

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The US Congress ( House of Representatives and Senate) has adjourned for elections and won't return until November 13 for the "lame duck" session --until the new Congress is seated in January .  No action on the six  bills before either the  House or Senate regarding the Social Security Death Index the commercial name of   the Death Master File will occur before the lame duck session -if then.  They had  been waiting for the Obama Administration bill, but with Congress out until November 13 nothing has been forthcoming from the Administration at this time.
