Results of a study by George Mason University in the field of economic policy (Labour Supply Response To Overpayment Notifications: Evidence From Social Security Disability Insurance): Economics – Economic Policy

FEBRUARY 01, 2022 (NewsRx) — By a News Reporter – Staff News Editor at Daily Insurance News — Findings from research on economics – economic policy are discussed in a new report. According to reports from Fairfax, Virginiaby the editors of NewsRx, the research said, “We use administrative data to provide evidence that notification of work-related overpayment debt reduces subsequent work activity of Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiaries.”

Financial support for this research came from United States Social Security Administration.

Our reporters got a quote from the research of George Mason University“We exploit the randomness of the timing of overpayment debt notification by comparing recipient work activity before and after notification. Our results show that the share of overpaid recipients engaging in work activity Substantial decreased by 8% over the 2 month period following an overpayment notification, which was reduced to 4% after taking into account the continued downward trend in work activity.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “This evidence that notification of overpayment debt discourages work highlights the need for policies to reduce overpayments.”

This research has been peer reviewed.
