SSA uses form HA–501 to document when applicants for Social Security benefits have their claims denied and want to request an administrative hearing to appeal SSA’s decision. The scope of this form is now being expanded to include people who wish to appeal the decision that has been made regarding their obligation to pay a new Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA) for Medicare Part B, as per the requirements of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003. Although this information will be collected by SSA, the actual hearings will take place before administrative law judges (ALJ) who are employed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The current respondents include applicants for various Social Security benefits programs who want to request a hearing where they can appeal their denial; the new additional respondents are Medicare Part B recipients whom SSA has determined will have to pay the new Medicare Part B IRMAA and who wish to appeal this decision at a hearing before an HHS ALJ. Type of Request: Emergency revision of an OMB-approved information collection. Number of Respondents: 669,469. Frequency of Response: 1. Average Burden per Response: 10 minutes. Estimated Annual Burden: 111,578 hours. The information collection listed below has been submitted to OMB for clearance.

State Supplementation Provisions: Agreement; Payments—20 CFR 416.2095–416.2098, 416.2099—0960– 0240. Section 1618 of the Social Security Act contains pass-along Number of respondents Reporting method provisions of the Social Security amendments. These provisions require that States which supplement the Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments also pass along Federal cost-of-living increases to individuals who are eligible for State supplemental payments. If a State fails to keep payments at the required level, it becomes ineligible for Medicaid reimbursement under Title XIX of the Social Security Act. In order to make sure the States are maintaining the payment levels, they submit their payment amounts to SSA. Seven of the participating States may use a totalexpenditures method, in which they send their total expenditures to SSA four times per year to prove that they are maintaining the regulated cost-ofliving increase. The remaining twenty three States send SSA one annual report which shows that they have maintained the cost-of-living increase as per the regulations. Respondents are State agencies administering supplemental programs. Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information collection. Number of Respondents: 30. Estimated Annual Burden: 51 hours.

This information collection is comprised of the components listed in the summary above.
