He says the bill would restore benefits to victims more quickly and it would require greater accountability from organizations that handle social security benefits.Grassley is chair of the Senate Special Committee on Aging. He says more than six million Americans who get Social Security have someone else managing their money. Fraud losses reportedly exceed seven million dollars.
