20 CFR 416.546, 416.635, 416.640, and 416.665--0960-0576. SSA requires

the use of money paid to Social Security or SSI recipients, and to 
establish and maintain a dedicated account for these payments. SSA uses 
Form SSA-6233 to: (1) Ensure the RPs use the payments for the 
recipient's current maintenance and personal needs; and (2) confirm the 
expenditures of funds from the dedicated account remain in compliance 
with the law. Respondents are RPs for SSI and Social Security 
recipients.

    II. SSA submitted the information collections below to OMB for 
clearance. Your comments regarding these information collections would 
be most useful if OMB and SSA receive them 30 days from the date of 
this publication. To be sure we consider your comments, we must receive 
them no later than August 9, 2018. Individuals can obtain copies of the 
OMB clearance packages by writing to [email protected].
    1. Claimant's Medication--20 CFR 404.1512, 416.912--0960-0289. In 
cases where claimants request a hearing after denial of their 
disability claim for Social Security, SSA uses Form HA-4632 to request 
information from the claimant regarding the medications they use. This 
information helps the administrative law judge overseeing the case to 
fully investigate: (1) The claimant's medical treatment and (2) the 
effects of the medications on the claimant's medical impairments and 
functional capacity. The respondents are applicants (or their 
representatives) for Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance 
(OASDI) benefits or SSI payments who request a hearing to contest an 
agency denial of their claim.

collection.

    2. Representative Payee Report--Special Veterans Benefits--20 CFR 
408.665--0960-0621. Title VIII of the Act allows for payment of monthly 
Social Security benefits to qualified World War II veterans residing 
outside the United States. An SSA-appointed representative payee may 
receive and manage the monthly payment for the beneficiary's use and 
benefit. SSA uses the information on Form SSA-2001-F6 to determine 
whether the representative payee used the certified payments properly, 
and continues to demonstrate strong concern for the beneficiary's best 
interests.
    Representative payees who receive Special Veterans Benefits (SVB) 
on behalf of beneficiaries residing outside the United States must 
complete the SSA-2001-F6 annually. We also require these representative 
payees to complete the form any time we have reason to believe they 
could be misusing the benefit payments. The respondents are individuals 
or organizations serving as representative payees who receive SVB on 
behalf of beneficiaries living outside the United States.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    3. Data Exchange Request Form--20 CFR 401.100--0960-0802. SSA 
maintains approximately 3,000 data exchange agreements and regularly 
receives new requests from Federal, State, local, and foreign 
governments, as well as private organizations, to share data 
electronically. SSA engages in various forms of data exchanges from 
Social Security number verifications to computer matches for benefit 
eligibility, depending on the requestor's business needs. Section 1106 
of the Act requires we consider the requestor's legal authority to 
receive the data, our disclosure policies, systems' feasibility, 
systems' security, and costs before entering into a data exchange 
agreement. We use Form SSA-157, Data Exchange Request Form, for this 
purpose. Requesting agencies, governments, or private organizations use 
the SSA-157 when voluntarily initiating a request for data exchange 
from SSA. Respondents are Federal, State, local, and foreign 
governments, as well as private organizations seeking to share data 
electronically with SSA.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
