Biden fires Trump-era Social Security commissioner after he refuses to resign

Biden dismissed SSA Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign, the White House said. The Social Security Administration, which operates independently, pays out more than $1T per year. WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden on Friday fired Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul, a holdover from President Donald Trump who regularly drew criticism from Democrats,unions and social welfare advocates.

“A White House official accused Saul of taking action during his tenure that “undermined and politicized Social Security disability benefits,” hurt relationships with federal employee unions and ran “contrary to the mission of the agency and the President’s policy agenda.”

Saul’s six-year term leading the Social Security Administration would have ended in January 2025, but the White House cited recent Supreme Court rulings to argue the president has the power to replace him.

Ralph de Juliis, general counsel for the American Federation of Government Employees’ General Committee for SSA, which represents 45,000 SSA employees, called it “a new day at the Social Security Administration.”

de Juliis said Saul and Black spent nearly three years “dragging down the quality of service the American people deserve.” He accused them of destroying employee morale, mismanaging stimulus relief funds to the elderly and disabled and creating an “anti-employee, anti-union workplace.”

“President Biden made the right call to send these Trump appointees packing and instead appoint someone who is dedicated to investing in Social Security,” he said.’
