Statement Regarding Marriage—20 CFR 404.726—0960–0017. According to section 216(h)(1)(A) of the Social Security Act (Act), SSA must apply state law when determining an individual’s marital status. Some state laws recognize marriages without a ceremony (i.e., common-law marriages). In such cases, SSA provides the same spouse or widow(er) benefits to common-law spouses as it does to ceremonially married spouses. To determine if someone is a common-law spouse, SSA must elicit information from blood relatives or other persons who are knowledgeable about the alleged common-law relationship. SSA uses Form SSA–753, Statement Regarding Marriage, to collect information from third parties to verify the applicant’s statements about intent, cohabitation, and holding out to the public as married, which are the basic tenets of a common-law marriage. SSA uses the information to determine if a valid marital relationship exists, and if the common-law spouse is entitled to Social Security spouse or widow(er) benefits. The respondents are third parties who can confirm or deny an alleged common-law marriage. Type of Request: Revision of an OMBapproved information collection.

Claimants may request Appeals Council review by filing a written request using Form HA– 520. SSA uses the information to establish the claimant filed the request for review within the prescribed time and to ensure the claimant completed the requisite steps permitting the Appeals Council review. The Appeals Council uses the information to: (1) Document the claimant’s reason(s) for disagreeing with the ALJ’s decision or dismissal; (2) determine whether the claimant has additional evidence to submit; and (3) determine whether the claimant has a representative or wants to appoint one.

State Mental Institution Policy Review Booklet—20 CFR 404.2035, 404.2065, 416.635, & 416.665—0960– 0110. SSA uses Form SSA–9584–BK: (1) To determine if the policies and practices of a state mental institution acting as a representative payee for SSA beneficiaries conform to SSA’s regulations in the use of benefits; (2) to confirm institutions are performing other duties and responsibilities required of representative payees; and (3) as the basis for conducting onsite reviews of the institutions and preparing subsequent reports of findings.

Modified Benefit Formula Questionnaire-Employer—20 CFR 401 & 402—0960–0477. Sections 215(a)(7) and 215(d)(3) of the Act require SSA to use the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), a modified benefit formula, to compute Social Security retirement or disability benefits for persons first eligible (after 1985) for both a Social Security benefit and a pension or annuity, based on employment not covered by Social Security. SSA determines if the WEP is applicable and when to apply it to a person’s benefit. SSA uses Form SSA–58 to verify the claimant’s allegations on Form SSA–150 (OMB No. 0960–0395, Modified Benefits Formula Questionnaire). SSA sends the SSA–58 to an employer for pensionrelated information, if the claimant is unable to provide it. The respondents are employers of people who are eligible after 1985 for both Social Security benefits and a pension based on work not covered by SSA.

Social Security disability beneficiaries and SSI recipients qualify for payments when a verified physical or mental impairment prevents them from working. If disability claimants attempt to return to work after receiving payments, but are unable to continue working, they submit the SSA–3033, Employee Work Activity Questionnaire, so SSA can evaluate their work attempt. SSA also uses this form to evaluate unsuccessful subsidy work and determine applicants’ continuing eligibility for disability payments. The respondents are employers of Social Security disability beneficiaries and SSI recipients who unsuccessfully attempted to return to work.

Some state laws recognize marriages without a ceremony (i.e., common-

married spouses. To determine if someone is a common-law spouse, SSA

SSA-753, Statement Regarding Marriage, to collect information from 
third parties to verify the applicant's statements about intent, 
cohabitation, and holding out to the public as married, which are the 
basic tenets of a common-law marriage. SSA uses the information to 
determine if a valid marital relationship exists, and if the common-law 
spouse is entitled to Social Security spouse or widow(er) benefits. The 
respondents are third parties who can confirm or deny an alleged 
common-law marriage.
