As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on July 31, 2013

S. 1360 would require federal agencies to expand their use of information on deceased individuals to improve accuracy of payments and for other purposes. To that end, the bill would require the Social Security Administration (SSA) to share information on deaths with more agencies and for a broader range of purposes. In addition, it would require the Office of Management and Budget to provide guidance, convene a task force on sharing information on the deaths of federal retirees, and submit reports to the Congress. Finally, the bill would require the Secretary of the Treasury to report efforts to reduce improper payments and require the Postal Service to share information on delivery addresses for the purposes of reducing improper payments.
