    Electronic Records Express Third-Party Registration Form--0960-NEW. 
ERE (Electronic Records Express) is an online system which enables 
medical providers and various third parties to submit disability 
claimant information electronically to SSA as part of the disability

are authorized to access a claimant's electronic disability folder. 
This request is for the Third-Party Registration Form. The respondents 
are third-party representatives of disability applicants or recipients 
who want to use ERE to electronically access beneficiary folders and 
submit information to SSA.

    Number of Respondents: 78,344.
