    2. Surveys in Accordance with E.O. 12862 for the Social Security 
Administration--0960-0526. Under the auspices of Executive Order 12862, 
Setting Customer Service Standards, SSA conducts multiple customer 
satisfaction surveys each year. These voluntary customer satisfaction 
assessments include paper, internet, and telephone surveys; mailed 
questionnaires; and customer comment cards. The purpose of these 
questionnaires is to assess customer satisfaction with the timeliness, 
appropriateness, access, and overall quality of existing SSA services 
and proposed modifications or new versions of services. The respondents 
are recipients of SSA services (including most members of the public), 
professionals, and individuals who work on behalf of SSA beneficiaries.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information

    3. The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program--20 CFR 411--
0960-0644. SSA's Ticket to Work (TTW) Program transitions Social 
Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income 
(SSI) recipients toward independence by allowing them to receive Social 
Security payments while maintaining employment under the auspices of 
the program. SSA uses service providers, called Employment Networks 
(ENs), to supervise participant progress through the stages of TTW 
Program participation, such as job searches and interviews; progress 
reviews; and changes in ticket status. ENs can be private for-profit 
and nonprofit organizations, as well as state vocational rehabilitation 
agencies (VRs). SSA and the ENs utilize the TTW program manager to 
operate the TTW Program and exchange information about participants. 
For example, the ENs use the program manager to provide updates on 
tasks such as selecting a payment system, or requesting payments for 
helping the beneficiary achieve certain work goals. Since the ENs are 
not PRA-exempt, the multiple information collections within the TTW 
program manager require OMB approval. Most of the categories of 
information are necessary for SSA to: (1) Comply with the Ticket to 
Work legislation; and (2) provide proper oversight of the program. SSA 
collects this information through several modalities, including forms, 
electronic exchanges, and written documentation. The respondents are 
the ENs or state VRs, SSDI beneficiaries, and blind or disabled SSI 
recipients working under the auspices of the TTW Program.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    4. Promoting Opportunity Demonstration--0960-0809. Section 823 of 
the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 required SSA to carry out the 
Promoting Opportunity Demonstration (POD) to test a new benefit offset 
formula for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries. 
Therefore, SSA is undertaking POD, a demonstration to evaluate the 
affect the new policy will have on SSDI beneficiaries and their 
families in several critical areas. We previously obtained OMB approval 
for this demonstration, and are in the midst of implementing the 
project. In this information collection request, we are seeking 
approval to add new questions to our follow-up surveys. Respondents are 
SSDI beneficiaries, who will provide written consent before agreeing to 
participate in the study and before we randomly assign them to one of 
the study treatment groups.
    Type of Request: Request for a new information collection.

    II. SSA submitted the information collection below to OMB for 
clearance. Your comments regarding this 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 November 21, 2018. Individuals can obtain copies of 
the OMB clearance packages by writing to [email protected].
    Certificate of Support--20 CFR 404.370, 404.750, 404.408a--0960-
0001. A parent of a deceased, fully insured worker may be entitled to 
Social Security Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) 
benefits based on the earnings record of the deceased worker under 
certain conditions. One of the conditions is the parent receives at 
least one-half support from the deceased worker. The one-half support 
requirement also applies to a spousal applicant in determining whether 
OASDI benefits are subject to Government Pension Offset (GPO). SSA uses 
Form SSA-760-F4 to determine if the parent of a deceased worker or a 
spouse applicant meets the one-half support requirement. Respondents 
are (1) parents of deceased workers, and (2)

spouses who may meet the GPO exception,
