Abstract The Census Bureau plans to conduct a survey for the Social Security Administration (SSA) beginning in September 2014. The survey is the SSA Supplement on Retirement, Pensions, and Related Content (SSA Supplement), which is the first externally sponsored supplement to the newly redesigned Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). The sample for the SSA Supplement will come from completed interviews from Wave 1 of the 2014 panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation, conducted from February to May of 2014 (2014 SIPP, OMB approval number 0607– 0977). The SSA Supplement is expected to be conducted once per SIPP Panel, after the completion of Wave 1 interviews. Questions in the SSA Supplement are from 2008 SIPP topical modules selected by the SSA, with minimal modifications (2008 SIPP, OMB approval number 0607–0944). PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The SSA bases two of its major policy micro-simulations on the SIPP: (1) Modeling Income in the Near Term (MINT) for evaluating Social Security reform; and, (2) the Financial Eligibility Model (FEM) for evaluating Supplemental Security Income, Qualified Medicare Beneficiary, and Medicare Part-D Low Income Subsidy programs. Recent economic events have had a profound impact on the overall economic well-being of our nation, and underscore the importance of the data the Social Security Administration is seeking to collect. Of specific importance to the SSA is the impact of this economic crisis on current and future beneficiaries. Since the 1996 SIPP panel, the SSA has used data collected by the SIPP for policy evaluation research and the modification of government programs. Prior to the 2014 SIPP redesign, the data came from core questions asked each wave and from intermittent topical supplements. As part of an effort to streamline the annual data collection in the SIPP instrument, the redesigned SIPP does not include some topical data previously used by the SSA for the MINT and FEM models. These items include detailed questions on personal retirement accounts, retirement and pension plans from current and previous employment, complete marital history, and functional limitations and disabilities affecting employment and daily living. The SSA Supplement will continue the collection of this necessary data which the SSA cannot obtain from any other source. The Census Bureau, through sponsorship by the SSA, plans to collect the SSA Supplement data using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI). Interviews for the SSA supplement will not be conducted through personal visits. Approximately 35,000 households are expected to be interviewed from the initial sample fielded in Wave 1 of the 2014 SIPP panel. Each household averages 2.1 people aged 15 and above, yielding approximately 73,500 personlevel interviews. The sample for the SSA Supplement will consist of all households that have completed interviews, either in person or by telephone, from 2014 SIPP Wave 1. New additions to the household between the 2014 SIPP interview and the SSA Supplement interview will not be included in the SSA Supplement; however, movers will be followed and interviewed, as they are in the SIPP. Interviews take approximately 30 minutes per adult on average; consequently, the total burden for SSA Supplement interviews will be 36,750 hours.

Jackson, the then-Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement (‘‘Assistant Secretary’’), signed a TDO denying Mahan Airways’ export privileges for a period of 180 days on the grounds that its issuance was necessary in the public interest to prevent an imminent violation of the Regulations. The TDO also named as denied persons Blue Airways, of Yerevan, Armenia (‘‘Blue Airways of Armenia’’), as well as the ‘‘Balli Group Respondents,’’ namely, Balli Group PLC, Balli Aviation, Balli Holdings, Vahid Alaghband, Hassan Alaghband, Blue Sky One Ltd., Blue Sky Two Ltd., Blue Sky Three Ltd., Blue Sky Four Ltd., Blue Sky Five Ltd., and Blue Sky Six Ltd., all of the United Kingdom. The TDO was issued ex parte pursuant to Section 766.24(a), and went into effect on March 21, 2008, the date it was published in the Federal Register. The TDO subsequently has been renewed in accordance with Section 766.24(d), including most recently on July 31, 2013.1 As of March 9, 2010, the Balli Group Respondents and Blue Airways were no longer subject to the TDO. As part of the February 25, 2011 TDO renewal, Gatewick LLC, Mahmoud Amini, and Pejman Mahmood Kosarayanifard (‘‘Kosarian Fard’’) were added as related persons in accordance with Section 766.23 of the Regulations. On July 1, 2011, the TDO was modified by adding Zarand Aviation as a respondent in order to prevent an imminent violation. Specifically, Zarand Aviation owned an Airbus A310 subject to the Regulations that was being operated for the benefit of Mahan Airways in violation of both the TDO 1 The July 31, 2013 Order was published in the Federal Register on August 7, 2013. 78 Fed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau plans to conduct a survey for the Social Security 
Administration (SSA) beginning in September 2014. The survey is the SSA 
Supplement on Retirement, Pensions, and Related Content (SSA 
Supplement), which is the first externally sponsored supplement to the 
newly redesigned Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). The 
sample for the SSA Supplement will come from completed interviews from 
Wave 1 of the 2014 panel of the Survey of Income and Program 
Participation, conducted from February to May of 2014 (2014 SIPP, OMB 
approval number 0607-0977). The SSA Supplement is expected to be 
conducted once per SIPP Panel, after the completion of Wave 1 
interviews. Questions in the SSA Supplement are from 2008 SIPP topical 
modules selected by the SSA, with minimal modifications (2008 SIPP, OMB 
approval number 0607-0944).
    The SSA bases two of its major policy micro-simulations on the 
SIPP: (1) Modeling Income in the Near Term (MINT) for evaluating Social 
Security reform; and, (2) the Financial Eligibility Model (FEM) for 
evaluating Supplemental Security Income, Qualified Medicare 
Beneficiary, and Medicare Part-D Low Income Subsidy programs. Recent 
economic events have had a profound impact on the overall economic 
well-being of our nation, and underscore the importance of the data the 
Social Security Administration is seeking to collect. Of specific 
importance to the SSA is the impact of this economic crisis on current 
and future beneficiaries. Since the 1996 SIPP panel, the SSA has used 
data collected by the SIPP for policy evaluation research and the 
modification of government programs. Prior to the 2014 SIPP redesign, 
the data came from core questions asked each wave and from intermittent 
topical supplements. As part of an effort to streamline the annual data 
collection in the SIPP instrument, the redesigned SIPP does not include 
some topical data previously used by the SSA for the MINT and FEM 
models. These items include detailed questions on personal retirement 
accounts, retirement and pension plans from current and previous 
employment, complete marital history, and functional limitations and 
disabilities affecting employment and daily living. The SSA Supplement 
will continue the collection of this necessary data which the SSA 
cannot obtain from any other source.
    The Census Bureau, through sponsorship by the SSA, plans to collect 
the SSA Supplement data using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing 
(CATI). Interviews for the SSA supplement will not be conducted through 
personal visits.
    Approximately 35,000 households are expected to be interviewed from 
the initial sample fielded in Wave 1 of the 2014 SIPP panel. Each 
household averages 2.1 people aged 15 and above, yielding approximately 
73,500 person-level interviews. The sample for the SSA Supplement will 
consist of all households that have completed interviews, either in 
person or by telephone, from 2014 SIPP Wave 1. New additions to the 
household between the 2014 SIPP interview and the SSA Supplement 
interview will not be included in the SSA Supplement; however, movers 
will be followed and interviewed, as they are in the SIPP. Interviews 
take approximately 30 minutes per adult on average; consequently, the 
total burden for SSA Supplement interviews will be 36,750 hours.

[[Page 4871]]

    The Census Bureau will release a public use file for availability 
to general data users via its Web site, with the ability to match to 
the 2014 SIPP public-use file.

II. Method of Collection

    The SSA Supplement will use the Computer Assisted Telephone 
Interview (CATI) mode of data collection. The SSA Supplement will be 
conducted as one interview per person once per SIPP Panel, after the 
completion of Wave 1 interviews. The interviews for the SSA Supplement 
will be conducted via the Census Bureau's three telephone centers with 
all household members 15 years old or over using regular proxy-
respondent rules. The SSA Supplement interviews are expected to last 2 
to 3 months beginning in September 2014.
