To be sure we consider your comments, we must receive them no later than September 3, 2019. Individuals can obtain copies of the OMB clearance packages by writing to OR.Reports.Clearance@ssa.gov. 1. Representative Payee Evaluation Report—20 CFR 404.2065 & 416.665— 0960–0069. Sections 205(j) and 1631(a)(2) of the Act state that SSA may authorize payment of Social Security benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments to a representative payee on behalf of individuals unable to manage, or direct the management of, those funds themselves. SSA requires appointed representative payees to report once each year on how they used or conserved those funds. When a representative payee fails to adequately report to SSA as required, SSA conducts a face-to-face interview with the payee and completes Form SSA–624–F5, Representative Payee Evaluation Report, to determine the continued suitability of the representative payee to serve as a payee. In addition to interviewing the representative payee, we also interview the recipient, and custodian (if other than the payee), to confirm the information the payee provides, and to ensure the payee is meeting the recipient’s current needs. The respondents are individuals or organizations serving as representative payees for individuals receiving Title II benefits or Title XVI payments, and who fail to comply with SSA’s statutory annual reporting requirement, and the recipients for whom they act as payee.

When an individual is concurrently receiving Social Security spousal, or surviving spousal, benefits, and a government pension, the individual may have the amount of Social Security benefits reduced by the government pension amount. This is the Government Pension Offset (GPO). SSA uses Form SSA–L4163 to collect accurate pension information from the Federal or State government agency paying the pension for purposes of applying the pension offset provision. SSA uses this form only when: (1) The claimant does not have the information; and (2) the pension-paying agency has not cooperated with the claimant. Respondents are State government agencies, which have information SSA needs to determine if the GPO applies, and the amount of offset.

In turn, SSA does not count the income or resources recipients use to fund a PASS when determining an individual’s SSI eligibility or payment amount. An SSI recipient who wants to use available income and resources to obtain education or training to become self-supporting completes Form SSA– 545. SSA uses the information from the SSA–545 to evaluate the recipient’s PASS, and to determine eligibility under the provisions of the SSI program.

Supplemental Security Income Wage Reporting (Telephone and Mobile)—20 CFR 416.701–416.732— 0960–0715. SSA requires SSI recipients to report changes which could affect their eligibility for, and the amount of, their SSI payments, such as changes in income, resources, and living arrangements. SSA’s SSI Telephone Wage Reporting (SSITWR) and SSI Mobile Wage Reporting (SSIMWR) enable SSI recipients to meet these requirements via an automated mechanism to report their monthly wages by telephone and mobile application, instead of contacting their local field offices. The SSITWR allows callers to report their wages by speaking their responses through voice recognition technology, or by keying in responses using a telephone key pad. The SSIMWR allows recipients to report their wages through the mobile wage reporting application on their smartphone. SSITWR and SSIMWR systems collect the same information Number of respondents Modality of completion Frequency of response and send it to SSA over secure channels. To ensure the security of the information provided, SSITWR and SSIMWR ask respondents to provide information SSA can compare against our records for authentication purposes. Once the system authenticates the identity of the respondents, they can report their wage data. The respondents are SSI recipients, deemors, or their representative payees.

Technical Updates to Applicability of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Reduced Benefit Rate for Individuals Residing in Medical Treatment Facilities—20 CFR 416.708(k)—0960–0758. Section 1611(e)(1)(A) of the Act specifies residents of public institutions are ineligible for SSI. However, Sections 1611(e)(1)(B) and (G) of the Act list certain exceptions to this provision, making it necessary for SSA to collect information about SSI recipients who enter or leave a medical treatment facility or other public or private institution. SSA’s regulation 20 CFR 416.708(k) establishes the reporting guidelines that implement this legislative requirement. SSA uses this information collection to determine SSI eligibility or the benefit amount for SSI recipients who enter or leave institutions. SSA personnel collect this information directly from SSI recipients, or from someone reporting on their behalf. An SSI recipient who enters an institution may be unable to report; therefore, a family member sometimes makes this report on behalf of the recipient. When contacting SSA, the recipient, or family member of the recipient, provides the name of the institution, the date of admission, and the expected date of discharge. The respondents are SSI recipients who enter or leave an institution, or individuals reporting on their behalf. This is a correction notice. SSA published this information collection as an extension on May 22, 2019 at 84 FR 23623.

    3. Agency/Employer Government Pension Offset Questionnaire --20 CFR 
404.408(a)--0960-0470. When an individual is concurrently receiving 
Social Security spousal, or surviving spousal, benefits, and a 
government pension, the individual may have the amount of Social 
Security benefits reduced by the government pension amount. This is the 
Government Pension Offset (GPO). SSA uses Form SSA-L4163 to collect 
accurate pension information from the Federal or State government 
agency paying the pension for purposes of applying the pension offset 
provision. SSA uses this form only when: (1) The claimant does not have

    4. Plan to Achieve Self-Support (PASS)--20 CFR 416.110(e), 
416.1180-1182, 416.1225-1227--0960-0559. The SSI program encourages 
recipients to return to work. One of the program objectives is to 
provide incentives and opportunities that help recipients toward 
employment. The PASS provision allows individuals to use available 
income or resources (such as business equipment, education, or 
specialized training) to enter or re-enter the workforce and become 
self-supporting. In turn, SSA does not count the income or resources 
recipients use to fund a PASS when determining an individual's SSI 
eligibility or payment amount. An SSI recipient who wants to use 
available income and resources to obtain education or training to 
become self-supporting completes Form SSA-545. SSA uses the information 
from the SSA-545 to evaluate the recipient's PASS, and to determine 
eligibility under the provisions of the SSI program. The respondents 
are SSI recipients who want to develop a return-to-work plan.

    5. Complaint Form for Allegations of Discrimination in Programs or 
Activities Conducted by the Social Security Administration--0960-0585. 
SSA uses Form SSA-437 to investigate and formally resolve complaints of 
discrimination based on disability; race; color; national origin 
(including limited English language proficiency); sex (including sexual 
orientation and gender identity); age; religion; or retaliation for 
having participated in a proceeding under this administrative complaint 
process in connection with an SSA program or activity. Individuals who 
believe SSA discriminated against them on any of the above bases may 
file a written complaint of discrimination. SSA uses the information 
to: (1) Identify the complaint; (2) identify the alleged discriminatory 
act; (3) establish the date of the alleged action; (4) establish the 
identity of any individual(s) with information about the alleged 
discrimination; and (5) establish other relevant information that would 
assist in the investigation and resolution of the complaint. 
Respondents are individuals who believe an SSA program or activity, or 
SSA employees, contractors or agents, discriminated against them.

    6. Supplemental Security Income Wage Reporting (Telephone and 
Mobile)--20 CFR 416.701-416.732--0960-0715. SSA requires SSI recipients 
to report changes which could affect their eligibility for, and the 
amount of, their SSI payments, such as changes in income, resources, 
and living arrangements. SSA's SSI Telephone Wage Reporting (SSITWR) 
and SSI Mobile Wage Reporting (SSIMWR) enable SSI recipients to meet 
these requirements via an automated mechanism to report their monthly 
wages by telephone and mobile application, instead of contacting their 
local field offices. The SSITWR allows callers to report their wages by 
speaking their responses through voice recognition technology, or by 
keying in responses using a telephone key pad. The SSIMWR allows 
recipients to report their wages through the mobile wage reporting 
application on their smartphone. SSITWR and SSIMWR systems collect the 
same information and send it to SSA over secure channels. To ensure the 
security of the information provided, SSITWR and SSIMWR ask respondents 
to provide information SSA can compare against our records for 
authentication purposes. Once the system authenticates the identity of 
the respondents, they can report their wage data. The respondents are 
SSI recipients, deemors, or their representative payees.

    7. Technical Updates to Applicability of the Supplemental Security 
Income (SSI) Reduced Benefit Rate for Individuals Residing in Medical 
Treatment Facilities--20 CFR 416.708(k)--0960-0758. Section 
1611(e)(1)(A) of the Act specifies residents of public institutions are 
ineligible for SSI. However, Sections 1611(e)(1)(B) and (G) of the Act 
list certain exceptions to this provision, making it necessary for SSA 
to collect information about SSI recipients who enter or leave a 
medical treatment facility or other public or private institution. 
SSA's regulation 20 CFR 416.708(k) establishes the reporting guidelines 
that implement this legislative requirement. SSA uses this information 
collection to determine SSI eligibility or the benefit amount for SSI 
recipients who enter or leave institutions. SSA personnel collect this 
information directly from SSI recipients, or from someone reporting on 
their behalf. An SSI recipient who enters an institution may be unable 
to report; therefore, a family member sometimes makes this report on 
behalf of the recipient. When contacting SSA, the recipient, or family 
member of the recipient, provides the name of the institution, the date 
of admission, and the expected date of discharge. The respondents are 
SSI recipients who enter or leave an institution, or individuals 
reporting on their behalf.
    This is a correction notice. SSA published this information 
collection as an extension on May 22, 2019 at 84 FR 23623. Since we are 
revising the Privacy Act Statement for this collection, this is now a 
revision of an OMB-approved information collection.

    8. Waiver of Supplemental Security Income Payment Continuation--20 
CFR 416.1400-416.1422--0960-0783. SSI recipients who wish to 
discontinue their SSI payments while awaiting a determination on their 
appeal complete Form SSA-263-U2, Waiver of Supplemental Security Income 
Payment Continuation, to inform SSA of this decision. SSA collects the 
information to determine whether the SSI recipient meets the provisions 
of the Act regarding waiver of payment continuation and as proof 
respondents no longer want their payments to continue. Respondents are 
recipients of SSI payments who wish to discontinue receipt of payment 
while awaiting a determination on their appeal.
