Individuals can obtain copies of the collection instruments by writing to the above email address. 1. Farm Self-Employment Questionnaire—20 CFR 404.1082(c) & 404.1095—0960–0061. SSA collects the information on Form SSA–7156 on a voluntary and as-needed basis to determine the existence of an agriculture trade or business, which may affect the monthly benefit, or insured status of the applicant. SSA requires the existence of a trade or business before determining if an individual or partnership may have net earnings from self-employment. When an applicant indicates self-employment as a farmer, SSA uses the SSA–7165 to obtain the information we need to determine the existence of an agricultural trade or business, and subsequent covered earnings for Social Security entitlement purposes. As part of the application process, we conduct a personal interview, either face-to-face or via telephone, and document the interview using Form SSA–7165. The respondents are applicants for Social Security benefits, whose entitlement depends on workers having covered earnings from self-employment as farmers. Type of Request: Revision of an OMBapproved information collection.

The request, which respondents submit in writing to the Commissioner, must (1) fully set out the nature and relevance of the sought testimony; (2) explain why the information is not available by other means; (3) explain why it is in SSA’s interest to provide the testimony; and (4) provide the date, time, and place for the testimony.

Notification of a Social Security Number (SSN) To An Employer for Wage Reporting—20 CFR 422.103(a)— 0960–0778. Individuals applying for employment must provide a Social Security Number, or indicate they have applied for one. However, when an individual applies for an initial SSN, there is a delay between the assignment of the number and the delivery of the SSN card. At an individual’s request, SSA uses Form SSA–132 to send the individual’s SSN to an employer. Mailing this information to the employer: (1) Ensures the employer has the correct SSN for the individual; (2) allows SSA to receive correct earnings information for wage reporting purposes; and (3) reduces the delay in the initial SSN assignment and delivery of the SSN information directly to the employer. It also enables SSA to verify the employer as a safeguard for the applicant’s personally identifiable information. The majority of individuals who take advantage of this option are in the United States with exchange visitor and student visas; however, we allow any applicant for an SSN to use the SSA–132. The respondents are individuals applying for an initial SSN who ask SSA to mail confirmation of their application or the SSN to their employers.

    2. Testimony by Employees and the Production of Records and 
Information in Legal Proceedings--20 CFR 403.100-403.155--0960-0619. 
Regulations at 20 CFR 403.100-403.155 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations establish SSA's policies and procedures for an individual, 
organization, or government entity to request official agency 
information, records, or testimony of an agency employee in a legal 
proceeding when the agency is not a party. The request, which 
respondents submit in writing to the Commissioner, must (1) fully set 
out the nature and relevance of the sought testimony; (2) explain why 
the information is not available by other means; (3) explain why it is 
in SSA's interest to provide the testimony; and (4) provide the date,

    3. Notification of a Social Security Number (SSN) To An Employer 
for Wage Reporting--20 CFR 422.103(a)--0960-0778. Individuals applying 
for employment must provide a Social Security Number, or indicate they 
have applied for one. However, when an individual applies for an 
initial SSN, there is a delay between the assignment of the number and 
the delivery of the SSN card. At an individual's request, SSA uses Form 
SSA-132 to send the individual's SSN to an employer. Mailing this 
information to the employer: (1) Ensures the employer has the correct 
SSN for the individual; (2) allows SSA to receive correct earnings 
information for wage reporting purposes; and (3) reduces the delay in 
the initial SSN assignment and delivery of the SSN information directly 
to the employer. It also enables SSA to verify the employer as a 
safeguard for the applicant's personally identifiable information. The 
majority of individuals who take advantage of this option are in the 
United States with exchange visitor and student visas; however, we 
allow any applicant for an SSN to use the SSA-132. The respondents are 
individuals applying for an initial SSN who ask SSA to mail 
confirmation of their application or the SSN to their employers.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
