Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 49 / Wednesday, March 13, 2019 / Notices The Exchange believes that it is consistent with fair competition to offer the All-or-None Order type solely to public customers in order to permit these main street retail investors to have advantages over broker-dealers trading on the Phlx. Also, the Exchange notes that it is rare for Professionals to utilize the All-or-None Order type. Broker dealers cannot use the All-or-None Order type today. Professionals are treated in the same manner as a broker dealer for purposes of Exchange rules. The Exchange believes that Professionals would be aligned with broker dealers with respect to not being offered the All-or-None Order type. Further, as compared to all other market participants, public customer orders are a source of liquidity in the market. Providing marketplace advantages to public customer orders attracts retail investor order flow to the Exchange by leveling the playing field for main street retail investors over market professionals and providing competitive pricing. Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others All submissions should refer to File Number SR–Phlx–2019–03. This file number should be included on the subject line if email is used. To help the Commission process and review your comments more efficiently, please use only one method. The Commission will post all comments on the Commission’s internet website (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml). Copies of the submission, all subsequent amendments, all written statements with respect to the proposed rule change that are filed with the Commission, and all written communications relating to the proposed rule change between the Commission and any person, other than those that may be withheld from the public in accordance with the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 552, will be available for website viewing and printing in the Commission’s Public Reference Room, 100 F Street NE, Washington, DC 20549 on official business days between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Copies of the filing also will be available for inspection and copying at the principal office of the Exchange. All comments received will be posted without change. Persons submitting comments are cautioned that we do not redact or edit personal identifying information from comment submissions. You should submit only information that you wish to make available publicly. All submissions should refer to File Number SR–Phlx– 2019–03 and should be submitted on or before April 3, 2019. No written comments were either solicited or received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 28 and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.29 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the 28 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission written notice of its intent to file a proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 29 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:45 Mar 12, 2019 Jkt 247001 IV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In an effort to combat a cause of improper payments, we are establishing the Travel and Border Crossing system to collect information about applicants, beneficiaries, and recipients under Titles II, XVI, and XVIII who have had absences from the United States (U.S.). Currently, we rely on individuals to self-report their foreign travel. Oftentimes, we do not receive these reports or we receive them untimely, which results in improper payments. In general, we suspend Title II benefits to aliens who remain outside of the U.S. for more than six consecutive calendar months. We generally suspend Title II benefits to both U.S. citizens and nonU.S. citizens who travel to a country where payment is restricted by the U.S. Additionally, we suspend Title XVI payments to both citizen and noncitizen recipients who are outside of the U.S. for a full calendar month or 30 consecutive days or longer. SSA is not responsible for making Title XVIII payment determinations on claims for services submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. However, the information collected in this system will be used for two purposes relating to Title XVIII. First, SSA will use this information to make initial and reconsideration decisions in Medicare entitlement claims, because the enrollment criteria requires residence in the U.S. Second, SSA will use this information to make determinations on physical presence in the U.S. and will update the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR) system of records with those determinations. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services may use information from the MBR in making decisions on whether a Medicare claim can be paid. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), we provided a report to OMB and Congress on this new system of records.

collect information about applicants, beneficiaries, and recipients 
under Titles II, XVI, and XVIII who have had absences from the United 
States (U.S.). Currently, we rely on individuals to self-report their 
foreign travel. Oftentimes, we do not receive these reports or we 
receive them untimely, which results in improper payments. In general, 
we suspend Title II benefits to aliens who remain outside of the U.S. 
for more than six consecutive calendar months. We generally suspend 
Title II benefits to both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens who 
travel to a country where payment is restricted by the U.S. 
Additionally, we suspend Title XVI payments to both citizen and non-
citizen recipients who are outside of the U.S. for a full calendar 
month or 30 consecutive days or longer. SSA is not responsible for 
making Title XVIII payment determinations on claims for services 
submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. However,

Medicare and Medicaid Services may use information from the MBR in 
making decisions on whether a Medicare claim can be paid.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), we provided a report to OMB 
and Congress on this new system of records.

protect PII and the criminal penalties that apply to unauthorized 
access to, or disclosure of, PII (e.g., 5 U.S.C. 552a(i)(1)). 
Furthermore, employees and contractors with access to databases 
maintaining PII must sign a sanctions document annually, acknowledging 
their accountability for inappropriately accessing or disclosing such 
information.

RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES:
    Individuals may submit requests for information about whether this 
system contains a record about them by submitting a written request to 
the system manager at the above address, which includes their name, 
SSN, or other information that may be in this system of records that 
will identify them. Individuals requesting notification of, or access 
to, a record by mail must include (1) a notarized statement to us to 
verify their identity or (2) must certify in the request that they are 
the individual they claim to be and that they understand that the 
knowing and willful request for, or acquisition of, a record pertaining 
to another individual under false pretenses is a criminal offense.
    Individuals requesting notification of, or access to, records in 
person must provide their name, SSN, or other information that may be

an identity document, preferably with a photograph, such as a driver's 
license. Individuals lacking identification documents sufficient to 
establish their identity must certify in writing that they are the 
individual they claim to be and that they understand that the knowing 
and willful request for, or acquisition of, a record pertaining to 
another individual under false pretenses is a criminal offense.
