Section 504 protects ‘‘qualified individuals with disabilities,’’ as defined in 45 CFR part 85, as ‘‘persons with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.’’ Agencies are required to take appropriate steps to ensure that qualified individuals with a disability are not denied access to the programs and activities the agency conducts because of their disabilities. To ensure compliance with Section 504, the agency may need to provide auxiliary aids or services or modifications to the way it conducts its programs. We will provide accommodations based on five broad categories of impairments: Blind or visual; cognitive or learning; deaf or hard of hearing; mobility or physical; and psychological or emotional. However, individuals who have other types of disabilities may also request an accommodation. We will use the information we collect to provide accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities, to provide management information to the agency, and for research and statistical purposes.

[Docket No. SSA-2014-0035]


Privacy Act of 1974; Proposed New System of Records

AGENCY: Social Security Administration (SSA).

ACTION: Proposed New System of Records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) we are 
issuing public notice of our intent to establish a new system of 
records entitled, Requests for Accommodation from Members of the Public 
(60-0378), hereinafter referred to as the RAMP system. We are 
establishing the RAMP system to cover information we receive from 
members of the public with disabilities who request accommodations in 
order to gain meaningful access to our programs.
    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794) 
provides that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability will, 
solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the 
participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to 
discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal 
financial assistance or under any program or activity conducted by any 
Executive agency. Section 504 protects ``qualified individuals with 
disabilities,'' as defined in 45 CFR part 85, as ``persons with a 
physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more 
major life activities.'' Agencies are required to take appropriate 
steps to ensure that qualified individuals with a disability are not 
denied access to the programs and activities the agency conducts 
because of their disabilities. To ensure compliance with Section 504, 
the agency may need to provide auxiliary aids or services or 
modifications to the way it conducts its programs. We will provide 
accommodations based on five broad categories of impairments: Blind or 
visual; cognitive or learning; deaf or hard of hearing; mobility or 
physical; and psychological or emotional. However, individuals who have 
other types of disabilities may also request an accommodation.
    We will use the information we collect to provide accommodations to 
qualified individuals with disabilities, to provide management 
information to the agency, and for research and statistical purposes.

DATES: We invite public comment on this new system of records. In 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (e)(11), the public is given a 
30-day period in which to submit comments. Therefore, please submit any 
comments by July 17, 2014.

ADDRESSES: The public, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and 
Congress may comment on this publication by writing to the Executive 
Director, Office of Privacy and Disclosure, Office of the General 
Counsel, SSA, Room 617 Altmeyer Building, 6401 Security Boulevard, 
Baltimore, Maryland 21235-6401, or through the Federal e-Rulemaking 
Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. All comments we receive will be 
available for public inspection at the above address and we will post 
them to http://www.regulations.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrea Huseth, Government Information 
Specialist, Disclosure and Data Support Division, Office of Privacy and 
Disclosure, Office of the General Counsel, SSA, Room 617 Altmeyer 
Building, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, Maryland 21235-6401, 
telephone: (410) 965-6868, email: andrea.huseth@ssa.gov.

request for, or acquisition of, a record pertaining to another 
individual under false pretenses is a criminal offense.
    Individuals requesting notification of records in person must 
provide their name, SSN, or other information that may be in this 
system of records that will identify them, as well as provide an 
identity document, preferably with a photograph, such as a driver's 
license. Individuals lacking identification documents sufficient to 
establish their identity must certify in writing that they are the 
individual they claim to be and that they understand that the knowing 
and willful request for, or acquisition of, a record pertaining to 
another individual under false pretenses is a criminal offense.
    Individuals requesting notification by telephone must verify their 
identity by providing identifying information that parallels the 
information in the record about which notification is sought. If we 
determine that the identifying information the individual provides by 
telephone is insufficient, we will require the individual to submit a 
request in writing or in person. If an individual requests information 
by telephone on behalf of another individual, the subject individual 
must be on the telephone with the requesting individual and with us in 
the same phone call. We will establish the subject individual's 
identity (his or her name, SSN, address, date of birth, and place of 
birth, along with one other piece of information such as mother's 
maiden name), and ask for his or her consent to provide information to 
the requesting individual. These procedures are in accordance with our 
regulations at 20 CFR 401.40 and 401.45.

RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES:
    Same as notification procedures. Individuals must also reasonably 
specify the record contents they are seeking. These procedures are in 
accordance with our regulations at 20 CFR 401.40(c).

CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES:
    Same as notification procedures. Individuals should also reasonably 
identify the record, specify the information they are contesting, and 
state the corrective action sought and the reasons for the correction 
with supporting justification showing how the record is incomplete, 
untimely, inaccurate, or irrelevant. These procedures are in accordance 
with our regulations at 20 CFR 401.65(a).

RECORD SOURCE CATEGORIES:
    We obtain information in this system from members of the public who 
request an accommodation, third parties requesting an accommodation on 
another's behalf, and other SSA systems of record, e.g., the Electronic 
Disability (eDib) Claim File, 60-0320.

SYSTEMS EXEMPTED FROM CERTAIN PROVISIONS OF THE PRIVACY ACT:
    None.
