matty619 writes “An Information Week article warns that the computer systems that run the Social Security Administration may collapse by 2012 due to increased workload, and a half-billion-dollar upgrade won’t be ready until 2015. One of the biggest problems is the agency’s transition to a new data center, according to a report (PDF) by the SSA’s Inspector General. The IG has characterized the replacement of the SSA’s National Computer Center — built in 1979 — as the SSA’s ‘primary IT investment’ in the next few years.”
