Andrew G. Biggs was named April 4, 2007, in a recess appointment by President George W. Bush to be Deputy Director of the Social Security Administration. [1]

Biggs is a researcher at the Cato Institute, a Washington, D.C., Libertarian think tank. Biggs "has been an outspoken proponent of converting Social Security benefits into self-directed retirement accounts, which Bush favors but Democrats have stopped cold. Bush nominated Biggs to that post in November [2006], but the process stalled in February when the Senate Finance Committee refused to hold confirmation hearings because of his views on privatization."
