no later than July 1, 2013. Individuals can obtain copies of the OMB 
clearance packages by writing to OR.Reports.Clearance@ssa.gov.
    1. Agency/Employer Government Pension Offset Questionnaire--20 CFR 
404.408(a)--0960-0470. When an individual is concurrently receiving 
Social Security spousal or surviving spousal benefits and a government 
pension, the individual may have the amount of Social Security benefits 
reduced by the government pension amount. This is the Government 
Pension Offset (GPO). SSA uses Form SSA-L4163 to collect accurate 
pension information from the Federal or State government agency paying 
the pension for purposes of applying the pension offset provision. SSA 
uses this form only when (1) the claimant does not have the 
information; and (2) the pension-paying agency has not cooperated with 
the claimant. Respondents are State government agencies that have 
information SSA needs to determine if the GPO applies and the amount of 
offset.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

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. SSA uses Forms SSA-3375-BK through SSA-3379-BK 
in the disability determination process to request information from a 
child's parent or guardian for children applying for Supplemental 
Security Income (SSI). The five different versions of the form contain 
questions about the child's day-to-day functioning appropriate to a 
particular age group; thus, respondents use only one version of the 
form for each child.
    The adjudicative team (disability examiners and medical or 
psychological consultants) of State disability determination services 
offices collect the information on the appropriate version of this form 
(in conjunction with medical and other evidence) to form a complete 
picture of the children's ability to function and their impairment-
related limitations. The adjudicative team uses the completed profile 
to determine whether each child's impairment(s) results in marked and 
severe functional limitations and whether each child is disabled. The 
respondents are parents and guardians of child applicants for SSI.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    3. Technical Updates to Applicability of the Supplemental Security 
Income (SSI) Reduced Benefit Rate for Individuals Residing in Medical 
Treatment Facilities--20 CFR 416.708(k)--0960-0758. Section 
1611(e)(1)(A) of the Act states that residents of public institutions 
are ineligible for SSI. However, sections 1611(e)(1)(B) and (G) list 
certain exceptions to this provision making it necessary for SSA to 
collect information about SSI recipients who enter or leave a medical 
treatment facility or other public or private institution. SSA's 
regulation 20 CFR 416.708(k) establishes the reporting guidelines 
implementing this legislative requirement. SSA collects the information 
to determine eligibility for SSI and the payment amount. The 
respondents are SSI recipients who enter or leave an institution.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
