SSA receives Direct Deposit/Electronic Funds Transfer (DD/EFT) enrollment information from OASDI beneficiaries and SSI recipients to facilitate DD/EFT of their funds with their chosen financial institution.

Respondents are OASDI beneficiaries and SSI recipients requesting that we enroll them in the Direct Deposit program or change their direct deposit banking information.

These regulations explain the process we follow when we restrict individuals from receiving in-person VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Dec 29, 2015 Jkt 238001 services in our field offices and provide them, instead, with alternative services. We published these rules to create a safer environment for our personnel and members of the public who use our facilities, while ensuring we continue to serve the American people with as little disruption to our operations as possible. Under our regulations at 20 CFR 422.905, an individual whom we restrict access to our facilities has the opportunity to appeal our decision within 60 days of the date of the restrictive access and alternative service notice. Under 20 CFR 422.906, if the individual does not appeal the decision within the 60 days; if we restrict the individual prior to the effective date of this regulation; or if the appeal results in a denial, the individual has another opportunity to request review of the restriction after a three-year period. We make this periodic review available to all restricted individuals once every three years. PO 00000 Frm 00159 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Information Collection Description The interim final restrictive access and alternative services rules contain two public reporting burdens: • 20 CFR 422.905—after SSA issues a restrictive access and alternative service decision against an individual, the individual has 60 days to appeal the determination. Restricted individuals must submit a written appeal stating why they believe SSA should rescind the restriction and allow them to conduct business with us on a face-toface basis in one of our offices. There is no printed form for this request; restricted individuals create their own written statement of appeal, and submit it to a sole decision-maker in the regional office of the region where the restriction originated. The individuals may also provide additional documentation to support their appeal. • 20 CFR 422.906—three years after the original restrictive access and alternative service decision, restricted individuals may re-submit a written E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1 81666 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 250 / Wednesday, December 30, 2015 / Notices appeal of the decision.

Protecting the Public and Our Personnel To Ensure Operational 
Effectiveness (RIN 0960-AH35), Regulation 3729I--20 CFR 422.905 and 
422.906--0960-0796

Background

    On September 2, 2011, the agency published interim final 
regulations and notifications processes for the restrictive access and 
alternative service process at 76 FR 54700. These regulations explain 
the process we follow when we restrict individuals from receiving in-
person services in our field offices and provide them, instead, with 
alternative services. We published these rules to create a safer 
environment for our personnel and members of the public who use our 
facilities, while ensuring we continue to serve the American people 
with as little disruption to our operations as possible. Under our 
regulations at 20 CFR 422.905, an individual whom we restrict access to 
our facilities has the opportunity to appeal our decision within 60 
days of the date of the restrictive access and alternative service 
notice. Under 20 CFR 422.906, if the individual does not appeal the 
decision within the 60 days; if we restrict the individual prior to the 
effective date of this regulation; or if the appeal results in a 
denial, the individual has another opportunity to request review of the 
restriction after a three-year period. We make this periodic review 
available to all restricted individuals once every three years.

Information Collection Description

    The interim final restrictive access and alternative services rules 
contain two public reporting burdens:
     20 CFR 422.905--after SSA issues a restrictive access and 
alternative service decision against an individual, the individual has 
60 days to appeal the determination. Restricted individuals must submit 
a written appeal stating why they believe SSA should rescind the 
restriction and allow them to conduct business with us on a face-to-
face basis in one of our offices. There is no printed form for this 
request; restricted individuals create their own written statement of 
appeal, and submit it to a sole decision-maker in the regional office 
of the region where the restriction originated. The individuals may 
also provide additional documentation to support their appeal.
     20 CFR 422.906--three years after the original restrictive 
access and alternative service decision, restricted individuals may re-
submit a written

[[Page 81666]]

appeal of the decision. The same criteria apply as for the original 
appeal: (1) It must be in writing; (2) it must go to a sole decision-
maker in the regional office of the region where the restriction 
originated for review; and (3) it may accompany supporting 
documentation.
    Respondents for this collection are individuals appealing their 
restrictions from in-person services at SSA field offices.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
