SSA uses Form SSA–1199(Country) to enroll Title II beneficiaries residing abroad in IDD, and to obtain the direct deposit information for foreign accounts. Routing account number information varies slightly for each foreign country, so we use a variation of the Treasury Department’s Form SF–1199A for each country. The respondents are Social Security beneficiaries residing abroad who want SSA to deposit their Title II benefit payments directly to a foreign financial institution. CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).

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.

Title II beneficiaries use Forms SSA–1099 and SSA–1042S, Social Security Benefit Statement, to determine if their Social Security benefits are taxable, and the amount they need to report to the Internal Revenue Service. In cases where the original forms are unavailable (e.g., lost, stolen, mutilated), an individual may use SSA’s automated telephone application to request a replacement SSA–1099 and SSA–1042S. SSA uses the information from the automated telephone requests to verify the identity of the requestor and to provide replacement copies of the forms.

International Direct Deposit (IDD) Program allows beneficiaries living

1199-(Country) to enroll Title II beneficiaries residing abroad in IDD, 
and to obtain the direct deposit information for foreign accounts. 
Routing account number information varies slightly for each foreign 
country, so we use a variation of the Treasury Department's Form SF-
1199A for each country. The respondents are Social Security 
beneficiaries residing abroad who want SSA to deposit their Title II 
benefit payments directly to a foreign financial institution.

    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

    2. Pain Report Child--20 CFR 404.1512 and 416.912--0960-0540. 
Before SSA can make a disability determination for a child, we require 
evidence from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) applicants or 
claimants to prove their disability. Form SSA-3371-BK provides 
disability interviewers, and SSI applicants or claimants in self-help 
situations, with a convenient way to record information about 
claimants' pain or other symptoms. The State disability determination 
services adjudicators and administrative law judges then use the 
information from Form SSA-3371-BK to assess the effects of symptoms on 
function for purposes of determining disability under the Act. The 
respondents are applicants for, or claimants of, SSI payments.

    3. Internet Request for Replacement of Forms SSA-1099/SSA-1042S--20 
CFR 401.45--0960-0583. Title II beneficiaries use Forms SSA-1099 and 
SSA-1042S, Social Security Benefit Statement, to determine if their 
Social Security benefits are taxable, and the amount they need to 
report to the Internal Revenue Service. In cases where the original 
forms are unavailable (e.g., lost, stolen, mutilated), an individual 
may use SSA's automated telephone application to request a replacement 
SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S. SSA uses the information from the automated 
telephone requests to verify the identity of the requestor and to 
provide replacement copies of the forms. The automated telephone 
options reduce requests to the National 800 Number Network (N8NN) and 
visits to local Social Security field offices (FO). The respondents are 
title II beneficiaries who wish to request a replacement SSA-1099 or 
SSA-1042S via telephone.

    Note:  This is a correction notice. SSA published this 
information collection as a revision on September 16, 2015 at 80 FR 
55705. Since we are not revising the Privacy Act Statement, this is 
now an extension of an OMB-approved information collection.

    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
