Social Security Administrators holds a Joint Meeting
Category : Press Releases
A joint meeting between three Social Security Systems took place on December 7th, 2017 in Guam, USA. In attendance were FSMSSA Administrator Alexander R. Narruhn, Republic of Palau Administrator Ulai Teltull, and Administrator for Marshal Islands Social Security Saane K. Aho. FSMSSA programmer Jill Derickson and IT Manager Midion Neth Jr. were also present for important purposes. Hence, the purpose of the joint meeting was to amend on possibilities to share cost on a database system. The Fox-pro being used now at FSMSSA is not being supported by Microsoft, therefore, we look forward to changing our software within the next 3-5 years. With efforts, the FSMSSA is in the process of making proposals for grants to assist with funding. While the process of moving into the new program is pending, the three systems had agreed upon using the same database that Palau Social Security is using due to the fact that they all have the same files in each system’s database. FSMSSA and Marshall Islands Social Security had agreed to use the same program as soon as Palau Social Security finalizes their database. Further discussions are in process to accommodate the needs of the three Social Security Programs, which all look forward to a great success.
