President Trump has re-nominated Klamath Falls resident Andrew G. Biggs to the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico.
Biggs is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He writes about Social Security reform, state and local government pensions, and public sector pay and benefits. Prior to that position, Biggs was a member of the Social Security Administration management team. He served as principal deputy SSA commissioner from 2007 to 2008, deputy commissioner for policy from 2006 to 2007, and associate commissioner for retirement policy from 2003 to 2007.
