Download as PDF 66967 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 210 / Friday, October 30, 2015 / Notices Computation SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION Under the formula, the election official and election worker coverage threshold for 2016 is equal to the 1999 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2014 to that for 1997. If the amount we determine is not a multiple of $100, it we round it to the nearest multiple of $100. [Docket No: SSA–2015–0065] Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1999 election worker coverage threshold amount ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2014 ($46,481.52) to that for 1997 ($27,426.00) produces $1,694.80. We then round this amount to $1,700. Therefore, the election official and election worker coverage threshold amount is $1,700 for 2016.

To help determine a child’s entitlement to Social Security benefits, SSA uses criteria under section 216(h)(3) of the Social Security Act, deemed child provision. SSA may deem a child to an insured individual if: (1) The insured individual presents SSA with satisfactory evidence of parenthood, and was living with or contributing to the child’s support at certain specified times; or (2) the insured individual (a) acknowledged the child in writing; (b) was court decreed as the child’s parent; or (c) was court ordered to support the child. To obtain this information, SSA uses Form SSA–2519, Child Relationship Statement.

We require this application for reinstatement of benefits for respondents to obtain SSI disability payments for EXR. When an SSA claims representative learns of individuals whose medical conditions no longer permit them to perform substantial gainful activity as defined in the Act, the claims representative gives or mails the form to the previously entitled individuals if they request EXR over the phone.

Disability claimants, recipients, and their representatives use Form SSA–765 to accomplish these two actions. If respondents request the first option, SSA’s Disability Hearings Unit uses the form to schedule a hearing; ensure an interpreter is present, if required; and ensure the disability recipients or claimants and their representatives receive a notice about the place and time of the hearing. If respondents choose the second option, SSA uses the form and other evidence to reevaluate the claimant’s case and determine if the new information or evidence will change SSA’s decision.
