SSA maintains the information until a claim for Social Security benefits has been approved. At that time, SSA notifies the beneficiary of his/her potential eligibility for payments from the private pension plan. The respondents are administrators of pension benefit plans or their service providers employed to prepare the Schedule SSA on behalf of the pension benefit plan. Below are the estimates of the cost and hour burdens for completing and filing Schedule SSA(s). We have used an average to estimate the hour burden. However, the burden may be greater or smaller depending on whether the respondent is a large or small pension benefit plan and how many Schedule SSA’s are filed in a given year.

The proposed changes consist of the discontinuance and removal of the bidirectional automatic block signal system (Rules 261-ABS), a traffic control system on approximately 2,000 feet of VRE Yard Lead Track, and the conversion of this section of trackage into an ‘‘other than main track’’ operation (Rule 96).

Additionally, one copy of the protest shall be furnished to the applicants at the address listed above. FRA expects to be able to determine these matters without an oral hearing.

Collection Background

    Section 1612(1)(C) of the Social Security Act (the Act) and 
regulations at 42 U.S.C. 1382a define remuneration received for 
services performed in a sheltered workshop as earned income for the 
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The amount of monthly wages 
determines an individual's SSI benefit amount.

Collection Description

    SSA has maintained a working relationship with sheltered workshops 
since the inception of the SSI program. Most workshops report monthly 
wage totals to the local SSA office so that the client's SSI check is 
adjusted timely and overpayments are prevented. While participation of 
the workshop is strictly voluntary, they are highly motivated to report 
the wages because it provides a service to their clients. Sheltered 
Workshop reporting reduces the number of overpayments to SSI 
recipients. Processing these wage reports electronically reduces the 
cost of administering the program. SSA uses the information collected 
to verify and post monthly wages to the SSI recipient's record. 
Respondents are sheltered workshops that report monthly wages for 
services performed in the workshop.
    Type of Request: New information collection.
    Number of Respondents: 1,000.

School Records--20 CFR 404.704, 404.716, 416.802, and 422.107--0960-
0693. SSA prepares the SSA-L106 and SSA-L706 for individuals who need 
help in obtaining evidence of their age in connection with Social 
Security number card applications and claims for benefits. SSA also 
uses the SSA-L706 to determine the existence of primary evidence of age 
for Social Security Number (SSN) applicants, and SSA uses both letters 
to verify with the issuing entity, when necessary, the authenticity of 
the record submitted by the SSN applicant or claimant. The respondents 
are schools, state and local bureaus of vital statistics, and religious 
entities.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 7,200.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden per Response: 10 minutes.

most useful if received by OMB and SSA within 30 days from the date of

    1. Function Report--Child: Birth to 1st Birthday (SSA-3375), Age 1 
to 3rd Birthday (SSA-3376), Age 3 to 6th Birthday (SSA-3377), Age 6 to 
12th Birthday (SSA-3378), and Age 12 to 18th Birthday (SSA-3379)--20 
CFR 416.912--0960-0542. State Agency adjudicative teams use the 
information gathered by these forms in combination with other medical 
functional evidence to form a complete picture of a child's ability to 
function. This information is used to help determine if a child is 
disabled, especially in cases in which disability cannot be found on 
medical grounds alone. The respondents are applicants for Title XVI 
childhood disability benefits and their caregivers.

collection.
    Number of Respondents: 550,000.

    Estimated Annual Burden: 183,333 hours.
    2. Annual Registration Statement Identifying Separated Participants 
With Deferred Benefits, Schedule SSA--0960-0606. Schedule SSA is a form 
filed annually as part of a series of pension plan documents required 
by section 6057 of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Administrators of 
pension benefit plans are required to report specific information on 
future plan benefits for those participants who left plan coverage 
during the year. SSA maintains the information until a claim for Social 
Security benefits has been approved. At that time, SSA notifies the 
beneficiary of his/her potential eligibility for payments from the 
private pension plan. The respondents are administrators of pension 
benefit plans or their service providers employed to prepare the 
Schedule SSA on behalf of the pension benefit plan. Below are the 
estimates of the cost and hour burdens for completing and filing 
Schedule SSA(s). We have used an average to estimate the hour burden. 
However, the burden may be greater or smaller depending on whether the 
respondent is a large or small pension benefit plan and how many 
Schedule SSA's are filed in a given year.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 88,000.
