Her goal is to provide feedback and recommendations in order to increase benefits enrollment for those eligible.
Qualified participants include current or former members of the military who became disabled after January 1, 2006, are over 18, and have been medically diagnosed with a disability that has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year.
Participants will receive an incentive payment and do not have to be current recipients of Social Security benefits.
