    The total estimated annual burden for all categories described in 
this information collection is 4,501,166 hours.

    Note:  This is a correction notice: SSA published this 
information collection as a revision and with incorrect burden 
information at 79 FR 26798 on 05/09/14. We are correcting this error 
here.

    2. Authorization to Disclose Information to SSA--20 CFR 404.1512 
and 416.912, 45 CFR 160 and 164--0960-0623. Sections 223(d)(5)(A) and 
1614(a)(3)(H)(i) of the Social Security Act require claimants to 
furnish such medical and other evidence as the Commissioner of Social 
Security may require to prove that they are disabled. SSA must obtain 
sufficient evidence to make eligibility determinations for Title II and 
Title XVI payments. Therefore, the applicant must authorize release of 
information from various sources to SSA. The applicants use Form SSA-
827 to provide consent for the release of medical records, education 
records, and other information related to their ability to perform 
tasks. Once the applicant completes Form SSA-827, SSA or the State DDS 
sends the form to the designated source(s) to obtain pertinent records. 
The respondents are applicants for Title II benefits and Title XVI 
payments.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
