    2. Request for Accommodation in Communication Method--0960-0777. 
SSA allows blind or visually impaired Social Security applicants, 
beneficiaries, recipients, and representative payees to choose one of 
seven alternative methods of communication they want SSA to use when we 
send them benefit notices and other related communications. The seven 
alternative methods we offer are: (1) Standard print notice by first-
class mail; (2) standard print mail with a follow-up telephone call; 
(3) certified mail; (4) Braille; (5) Microsoft Word file on data CD; 
(6) large print (18-point font); or (7) audio CD. However, respondents 
who want to receive notices from SSA through a communication method 
other than the seven methods listed above must explain their request to 
us. Those respondents use Form SSA-9000 to: (1) Describe the type of 
accommodation they want, (2) disclose their condition necessitating the 
need for a different type of accommodation, and (3) explain why none of 
the seven methods described above are sufficient for their needs. SSA 
uses Form SSA-9000 to determine, based on applicable law and 
regulation, whether to grant the respondents' requests for an 
accommodation based on their blindness, or other visual impairment. SSA 
collects this information electronically through either an in-person 
interview or a telephone interview during which the SSA employee keys 
in the information on Intranet screens. The respondents are blind or 
visually impaired Social Security applicants, beneficiaries, 
recipients, and representative payees who ask SSA to send notices and 
other communications in an alternative method besides the seven 
modalities we currently offer.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information
