Carolyn W. Colvin's nomination to lead the Social Security Administration cleared the Senate Finance Committee on Thursday, queuing up a final vote for the Maryland native later this year. The committee voted 22-2 to advance her nomination to head the Woodlawn-based agency, where she has served as acting commissioner since early last year. "Colvin has vast management experience and a steely resolve to complete successfully whatever mission she is assigned," Sen. Ben Cardin, a member of the committee, said in a statement.

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama on Friday will formally nominate Carolyn W. Colvin to head the Social Security Administration, where she has served as acting commissioner since last year. The decision comes as the Woodlawn-based agency has been criticized by some on Capitol Hill over a long-standing backlog of disability claims and, more recently, the shuttering of dozens of field offices across the country.   The nomination begins what is likely to be a contentious confirmation process in the Senate.

Criticism of President Barack Obama's nominee to lead the Social Security Administration appeared to evaporate Thursday at a confirmation hearing that featured few questions about controversial service cuts and recent allegations of mismanagement. Carolyn W. Colvin's hearing before the Senate Finance Committee - which took place hours ahead of a scheduled monthlong recess - drew only two Republicans and lasted less than an hour, an indication the Maryland native might face an easier path to the job than initially expected.

— President Barack Obama's nominee to lead the Social Security Administration will face tough questioning from lawmakers during her confirmation — and many of the hardest queries could come from members of her own party. Carolyn W. Colvin, chosen by Obama this month to head the Woodlawn-based agency, has sparked little opposition from seniors groups or Republicans, but a growing number of Democrats are voicing concerns about cuts the agency has made under her watch. More than a hundred House Democrats have signed a letter urging the agency to reconsider some of those reductions.

President Barack Obama named a veteran federal official from Maryland to lead the Social Security Administration on Friday, more than a year after the previous director left the critical post. Carolyn W. Colvin, 72, an Arnold native who has served as acting director of the Woodlawn-based agency since last year, would formally take over at a time when budget cuts have forced service reductions and an aging U.S. population has threatened to strain its marquee retirement benefits program.

A potential deal with outfielder Tyler Colvin has been held up due to concerns the Orioles had about a physical he took last Wednesday, according to an industry source. No specifics were given as to what questions the Orioles may have had or if the Orioles and Colvin could potentially agree to a lesser deal.  Asked earlier today about any hold up involving Colvin, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said: “We didn't report anything with Colvin. We never reported anything with Colvin.” Duquette has never confirmed that a deal was in place with Colvin - or that the club was talking to the 28-year-old outfielder.

The Obama administration said Monday that it is processing Social Security benefits for same-sex couples, six months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act. Carolyn W. Colvin, acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration said in a statement that it is processing "some" widow and widower claims and one-time lump sum death benefit claims. The Woodlawn-based agency did not immediately respond to a request for more information about which types of claims are being processed.

President Barack Obama has not yet nominated a successor for Michael J. Astrue, the appointee of former President George W. Bush whose six-year term ended last month. Obama's nominee must be confirmed by the Senate. Colvin was deputy commissioner under Astrue and has also served as special assistant to Maryland's secretary of transportation.
