Download as PDF 58044 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 190 / Monday, October 2, 2006 / Notices Direct Payment Information, to obtain the representative’s SSN and other information we need to issue Forms 1099–MISC. We published a Federal Register notice of our intent to establish both the SSA–1699 and the SSA–1695, which is discussed below. See 71 FR 38681–38683, July 7, 2006. The one-time submission of the SSA– 1699 is the first step in a two-step registration process that a representative must complete in order to receive direct fee payment in a specific claim. We are providing an electronic means by which representatives may complete and submit the SSA–1699 via our Internet Web site. The second step requires that a representative provide SSA with his or her SSN in each instance of representation (i.e., each time the representative is appointed to represent a claimant before SSA or, if an attorney did not register when the claim was pending before the Commissioner, each time a Federal court approves a fee) by submitting the Form SSA–1695, Identifying Information for Possible Direct Payment of Authorized Fees. The first step in the registration process, the one-time submission of the SSA–1699, begins with publication of this notice. The second step, submission of the SSA–1695, will begin in November of 2006. We will provide further information about the required forms, and the application developed to enable completion and submission of the SSA– 1699 electronically via the Internet, on the Representing Claimants Web site on Social Security Online (https:// www.socialsecurity.gov/representation). If a representative does not provide SSA with his or her SSN by completing both steps in the registration process as described above, SSA will not make direct fee payment to the representative, even if the representative is an attorney or a participant in the non-attorney direct payment demonstration project. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Program Nos. 96.001, Social Security— Disability Insurance; 96.002, Social Security—Retirement Insurance; 96.004, Social Security—Survivors Insurance; and 96.006, Supplemental Security Income) Dated: September 15, 2006.
