Download as PDF 67434 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 218 / Tuesday, November 12, 2013 / Notices Exchange believes that its proposal would not burden intramarket competition because the proposed rate would apply uniformly to all Members. Flag RW The Exchange believes that its proposal to pass through a fee of $0.0018 per share for Members’ orders that yield Flag RW would increase intermarket competition because it offers customers an alternative means to route to CBSX for the same price as entering orders on CBSX directly. The Exchange believes that its proposal would not burden intramarket competition because the proposed rate would apply uniformly to all Members. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has not solicited, and does not intend to solicit, comments on this proposed rule change.

We call this the incorporation-byreference process. In addition, the regulations for this process state that if the involved parties want a record of the oral decision, they may submit a written request for these records.

Since there is no prescribed form to request a written record of the decision, the involved parties send SSA their contact information and reference the hearing for which they would like a record.

    2. Incorporation by Reference of Oral Findings of Fact and 
Rationale in Wholly Favorable Written Decisions (Bench Decision 
Regulation)--20 CFR 404.953 and 416.1453--0960-0694. If an 
administrative law judge (ALJ) makes a wholly favorable oral decision 
that includes all the findings and rationale for the decision for a 
claimant of Title II or Title XVI payments at an administrative appeals 
hearing, the ALJ sends a Notice of Decision (Form HA-82), as the 
records from the oral hearing preclude the need for a written decision. 
We call this the incorporation-by-reference process. In addition, the 
regulations for this process state that if the involved parties want a 
record of the oral decision, they may submit a written request for 
these records. SSA collects identifying information under the aegis of 
Sections 20 CFR 404.953 and 416.1453 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
to determine how to send interested individuals written records of a 
favorable incorporation-by-reference oral decision made at an 
administrative review hearing. Since there is no prescribed form to 
request a written record of the decision, the involved parties send SSA 
their contact information and reference the hearing for which they 
would like a record. The respondents are applicants for Disability 
Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments or 
their representatives to whom SSA gave a wholly favorable oral decision 
under the regulations cited above.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    3. Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security 
(PABSS)--20 CFR 435.51-435.52--0960-0768. In March of 2013, Social 
Security announced its intention to award grants to reestablish 
community-based protection and advocacy projects in every State, U.S. 
Territories, and the Hopi and Navajo tribal nations, as authorized 
under Section 1150 of the Social Security Act (Act). Awardees are the 
57 Protection & Advocacy (P&A) organizations established under Title I 
of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act. 
The PABSS projects are part of Social Security's strategy to increase 
the number of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or SSI 
recipients who return to work and achieve financial independence and 
self-sufficiency as the result of receiving support, representation, 
advocacy, or other services. The overarching objective of the PABSS 
program is to provide information and advice about obtaining vocational 
rehabilitation and employment services, and to provide advocacy or 
other services a beneficiary with a disability may need to secure, 
maintain, or regain gainful employment. The PABSS Annual Program 
Performance Report collects statistical information from each of the 
PABSS projects in an effort to manage and capture program performance 
and quantitative data. Social Security uses the information to evaluate 
the efficacy of the program, and to ensure beneficiaries are receiving 
quality services. The project data is valuable to Social Security in 
its analysis of and

future planning for the SSDI and SSI programs. The respondents are the 
57 PABSS project sites, and recipients of SSDI and SSI programs.
