Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS)—20 CFR 416.110(e), 416.1180– 1182, 416.1225–1227–0960–0559 The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program encourages disability payment recipients to return to work. One of the program objectives is to provide incentives and opportunities that help recipients do this. The PASS provision allows individuals to use available income or resources (such as business equipment, education, or specialized training) to enter or re-enter the workforce and become selfsupporting. In turn, SSA does not count the income or resources recipients use to fund a PASS when determining an individual’s SSI eligibility or payment amount. An SSI recipient, who wants to use available income and resources to obtain education or training to become self-supporting, completes the SSA–545. SSA uses the information from the SSA–545 to evaluate the recipient’s PASS, and to determine eligibility under the provisions of the SSI program. The respondents are SSI recipients who are blind or disabled and want to develop a plan to work. Note: This is a correction notice. SSA published this information collection as an extension on June 15, 2011 at 76 FR 35067.
