Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Request

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) publishes a list of 
information collection packages that will require clearance by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in compliance with Pub. L. 104-
13, the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, effective October 1, 1995. The 
information collection packages that may be included in this notice are 
for new information collections, approval of existing information 
collections, revisions to OMB-approved information collections, and 
extensions (no change) of OMB-approved information collections.
    SSA is soliciting comments on the accuracy of the agency's burden 
estimate; the need for the information; its practical utility; ways to 
enhance its quality, utility, and clarity; and on ways to minimize 
burden on respondents, including the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Written comments 
and recommendations regarding the information collection(s) should be 
submitted to the OMB Desk Officer and the SSA Reports Clearance 
Officer. The information can be mailed and/or faxed to the individuals 
at the addresses and fax numbers listed below: (OMB), Office of 
Management and Budget, Attn: Desk Officer for SSA, New Executive 
Building, Room 10235, 725 17th St., NW., Washington, DC 20503, Fax: 
202-395-6974.
    (SSA), Social Security Administration, DCFAM, Attn: Reports 
Clearance Officer, 1333 Annex Building, 6401 Security Blvd., Baltimore, 
MD 21235, Fax: 410-965-6400.
    The information collection listed below is pending at SSA and will 
be submitted to OMB within 60 days from the date of this notice. 
Therefore, your comments should be submitted to SSA within 60 days from 
the date of this publication. You can obtain a copy of the collection 
instrument by calling the SSA Reports Clearance Officer at 410-965-0454 
or by writing to the address listed above.
    SSI Monthly Wage Reporting Phase 2 Pilot--20 CFR 416.701-732--0960-
NEW. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients are required to 
report changes in their income, resources and living arrangements that 
may affect eligibility or payment amount. Currently, SSI recipients 
report changes on Form SSA-8150, Reporting Events--SSI, or to an SSA 
teleservice representative through SSA's toll-free telephone number, or 
they visit their local Social Security office.
    The SSI wage reporting program area has the highest error rate 
largely due to non-reporting, which accounts for approximately $500 
million in overpayments each year. Consequently SSA is evaluating 
methods for increasing reporting. SSA will conduct a pilot to test an 
additional method for individuals to report wages for the SSI program. 
We are testing to determine if, given an easily accessible automated 
format, individuals will increase compliance with reporting 
responsibilities. Increased timely reporting could result in a decrease 
in improper payments. SSA will also be testing the use of knowledge-
based authentication to determine if this is an effective method of 
accessing SSA's system.
    During the pilot, participants who need to report a change in 
earned income will call an SSA toll-free telephone number to report the 
change. The participants will access SSA's system using knowledge-based 
authentication (providing name, SSN and date of birth). Participants 
will either speak their report (voice recognition technology) or key in 
the information using the telephone key pad. SSA will issue receipts to 
disabled recipients who report wages using this method. Respondents to 
this collection are SSI recipients, deemors and representative payees 
of recipients who agree to participate in the pilot.
    Type of Request: New information collection.
    Number of Respondents: 600.
    Frequency of Response: 6.
    Average Burden Per Response: 5 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 300 hours.

    Dated: August 31, 2005.
