This article reports that the commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA) has reassured a U.S. senator that Americans who receive checks from his administration will continue to receive them come January 3, 2000 in spite of the year 2000 (Y2K) date conversion problem. He claimed that SSA has been on the Y2K problem for the last 10 years. The same thing cannot be claimed about the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies.
