Authorization To Disclose Information to the Social Security Administration—20 CFR Subpart O, 404.1512 and Subpart I, 416.912—0960– 0623. SSA must obtain sufficient medical evidence to make eligibility determinations for the SSDI benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. For SSA to obtain medical evidence, an applicant must authorize his or her medical source(s) to release the information to SSA. The applicant may use form SSA–827 to provide consent for release of information. Generally, the State DDS completes the form(s) based on information provided by the applicant, and sends the form(s) to the designated medical source(s).

SSA estimates that it takes a claimant 10 minutes to read both sides and sign the initial SSA– 827. However, once a claimant reads the first form, it takes considerably less time to date and sign the subsequent forms because the forms do not have to be read again. SSA estimates the signing and dating of the three additional forms at one minute per form, resulting in three additional minutes. Therefore, the total time it takes to complete all four SSA–827’s is 13 minutes. 3. Prisoner Matching Agreements—20 CFR 404.468 and 20 CFR 416.211 —0960–NEW. Collection Background Section 202(x) of the Social Security Act (the Act) and regulations at 20 CFR 404.468 preclude a person from receiving a benefit under title II for any month during which such individual is confined in a jail, prison, or other penal institution or correctional facility pursuant to his conviction of a criminal offense or because he/she is not-guilty by reason of insanity. Accordingly, Section 1611(e) of the Social Security Act and regulations at 20 CFR 416.211, provide that no person shall be an eligible individual or eligible spouse for VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:20 Mar 28, 2007 Jkt 211001 title XVI with respect to any month if throughout such month he is an inmate of a public institution. Prisoner Matching Collection Activity To enforce these provisions of the Act, SSA has entered into agreements with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, along with State and local correctional facilities and certain mental health institutions, to submit monthly prisoner reports to SSA. SSA matches these reports against our files to identify incarcerated individuals receiving Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments and take action to suspend their payments. SSA uses the reports of confinement as the basis for stopping payments under titles II & XVI. The respondents to the collection are State and local correctional facilities, the Federal Bureau of Prisons and certain mental health institutions that have entered into prisoner matching agreements with SSA. Type of Request: Collection in use without OMB Control Number. Number of Respondents: 3,000. Frequency of Response: 12. Average Burden per Response: 60 minutes.

In jurisdictions that do not define crimes as felonies this nonpayment/ineligibility applies to any crime that is punishable by death or imprisonment for more than one year, regardless of the actual sentence imposed. Fugitive Felon Matching Collection Activity To enforce these provisions of the Act, SSA has entered agreements with the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the U.S. Marshall Service, 21 individual States, Washington DC, and four metropolitan law enforcement agencies under which these law enforcement agencies submit outstanding felony and parole/probation violator warrants to SSA. SSA uses the reports of outstanding warrants as the basis for stopping payments under titles II & XVI. The respondents to the PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14847 collection are the Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies that have entered into Fugitive Felon matching agreements with SSA.
