Your comments regarding the information collection would be most useful if OMB and SSA receive them 30 days from the date of this publication.

Authorization for the Social Security Administration to Obtain Personal Information—20 CFR 404.704; 404.820—404.823; 404.1926; 416.203; and 418.3001—0960—NEW. SSA requests respondents fill out Form SSA– 8510, allowing SSA to contact a public or private custodian of records on behalf of an applicant or recipient of an SSA program to request evidence information, which may support a benefit application or payment continuation. We ask for evidence information such as the following: • Age requirements (e.g. birth certificate, court documents) • Insured status (e.g. earnings, employer verification) • Marriage or divorce information • Pension offsets • Wages verification • Annuities • Property information Number of respondents Modality of completion • Benefit verification from a State agency or third party • Immigration status (rare instances) • Income verification from public agencies or private individuals • Unemployment benefits • Insurance policies If the custodian requires a signed authorization from the individual(s) whose information SSA requests, SSA may provide the custodian with a copy of the SSA–8510. Once the respondent completes the SSA–8510, either using the paper form, or using the Modernized Supplemental Security Income Claims System (MSSICS) version, SSA uses the form as the authorization to obtain personal information regarding the respondent from third parties until the authorizing person (respondent) revokes the permission of its usage. The collection is voluntary; however, failure to verify the individuals’ eligibility can prevent SSA from making an accurate and timely decision for their benefits. The respondents are individuals who may file for, or currently receive, Social Security benefits, SSI payments, or Medicare part D subsidies.

Qualifying family members of U.S.-based anchors include spouse, VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:31 Jul 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 unmarried children under age 21, and parents. Eligible nationalities are determined on an annual basis following careful review of several factors, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ annual assessment of refugees in need of resettlement, prospective or ongoing repatriation efforts, and U.S. foreign policy interests. The P–3 category, along with the other categories of cases that have access to USRAP, is outlined in the annual Proposed Refugee Admissions— Report to Congress, which is submitted on behalf of the President in fulfillment of the requirements of section 207(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1157), and authorized by the annual Presidential Determination for Refugee Admissions. Having an AOR filed on a potential applicant’s behalf by an eligible anchor relative will be one of the criteria for access to this program. The AOR also informs the anchor relative that DNA evidence of all claimed parent-child relationships between the anchor relative and parents and/or unmarried children under 21 will be required as a condition of access to P–3 processing and that the costs will be borne by the anchor relative or his/ her family members who may apply for access to refugee processing, or their derivative beneficiaries, as the case may be. Successful applicants may be eligible for reimbursement of DNA test costs. Methodology This information collection currently involves the limited use of electronic techniques. Anchors in the United States may visit any resettlement agency throughout the United States to complete the AOR. Resettlement agencies are organizations that work under a cooperative agreement with the Department of State. In order to file an AOR, an individual must be at least 18 years of age and have been admitted to the United States as a refugee or granted asylum in the United States no more than five years prior to the filing of the AOR. The DS–7656 form will be available electronically and responses will be completed electronically with the aid of resettlement agency staff. Completed AORs will be printed out for ink signature by the respondents and will be scanned and submitted electronically to the Refugee Processing Center (RPC) by the resettlement agencies for downloading into the Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System (WRAPS) for data entry and case processing. A signed paper copy of the AOR will remain with resettlement agencies. PO 00000 Frm 00137 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38797 Dated: June 24, 2015.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Affidavit of Relationship (AOR) will be required by the 
Department of State to establish qualifications for access to the 
Priority-3 (P-3) Family Reunification category of the United States 
Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) by persons of certain nationalities 
who are family members of qualifying ``anchors'' (persons already 
admitted to the U.S. as refugees or who were granted asylum in the 
United States., including persons who may now be lawful permanent 
residents or U.S. citizens). Qualifying family members of U.S.-based 
anchors include spouse, unmarried children under age 21, and parents. 
Eligible nationalities are determined on an annual basis following 
careful review of several factors, including the United Nations High 
Commissioner for Refugees' annual assessment of refugees in need of 
resettlement, prospective or ongoing repatriation efforts, and U.S. 
foreign policy interests. The P-3 category, along with the other 
categories of cases that have access to USRAP, is outlined in the 
annual Proposed Refugee Admissions--Report to Congress, which is 
submitted on behalf of the President in fulfillment of the requirements 
of section 207(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
1157), and authorized by the annual Presidential Determination for 
Refugee Admissions. Having an AOR filed on a potential applicant's 
behalf by an eligible anchor relative will be one of the criteria for 
access to this program. The AOR also informs the anchor relative that 
DNA evidence of all claimed parent-child relationships between the 
anchor relative and parents and/or unmarried children under 21 will be 
required as a condition of access to P-3 processing and that the costs 
will be borne by the anchor relative or his/her family members who may 
apply for access to refugee processing, or their derivative 
beneficiaries, as the case may be. Successful applicants may be 
eligible for reimbursement of DNA test costs.

Methodology

    This information collection currently involves the limited use of 
electronic techniques. Anchors in the United States may visit any 
resettlement agency throughout the United States to complete the AOR. 
Resettlement agencies are organizations that work under a cooperative 
agreement with the Department of State. In order to file an AOR, an 
individual must be at least 18 years of age and have been admitted to 
the United States as a refugee or granted asylum in the United States 
no more than five years prior to the filing of the AOR. The DS-7656 
form will be available electronically and responses will be completed 
electronically with the aid of resettlement agency staff. Completed 
AORs will be printed out for ink signature by the respondents and will 
be scanned and submitted electronically to the Refugee Processing 
Center (RPC) by the resettlement agencies for downloading into the 
Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System (WRAPS) for data entry 
and case processing. A signed paper copy of the AOR will remain with 
resettlement agencies.
