The Acknowledgement portion of the TOS requires the claimant or a third party on the claimant’s behalf to acknowledge that he or she understands certain information, including: Æ The electronic appeal must be completed and filed within the 60-day appeal period. Æ The ‘‘Submit’’ button within the ‘‘Submit’’ Tab must be selected to file the appeal request with the Social Security Administration. Æ How to submit evidence, both before and after the appeal is filed. Æ When he or she can and cannot reenter the iAppeals application. Æ How to ensure that the electronic appeal is properly submitted. Æ How to add additional information or change information that has already been submitted. • Re-entry Number Screen— Claimants who choose not to complete their electronic appeals in one session can use the re-entry number we provide to return to iAppeals to complete and submit their appeals in subsequent sessions. The re-entry number screen explains that the appeal has not been completed or submitted and that claimants who choose to exit iAppeals before completion must return to iAppeals in order to complete and submit their appeals electronically. • Submit Tab: Claimants will see the Submit Tab throughout the electronic appeal application path. The Submit Tab remains available to select until claimants complete and submit their electronic appeal. The Submit Tab will not be available once the electronic appeal is submitted. Conclusion iAppeals is an efficient and convenient self-service option that allows claimants who are dissatisfied with our determination to electronically complete and submit a request for reconsideration or a hearing. The paperbased administrative appeals process remains available for claimants who wish to use it. While the use of iAppeals promotes our ability to process cases faster, it is the claimant’s choice whether to use the paper or electronic administrative appeals process. Claimants can obtain more information about iAppeals and our paper appeal VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:56 Aug 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 process by visiting our website www.ssa.gov.

(the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 54612, 54630, 54661, and 54629. WCL has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years; (2) overhead traffic (to the extent any exists) can be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the Line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short Line Railroad—Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) 1 to subsidize continued rail service has been received, this exemption will be effective on September 13, 2019, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues must be filed by August 23, 2019, and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA to subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 2 must be filed by August 26, 2019.3 Petitions for reconsideration BILLING CODE 4710–05–P SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD [Docket No. AB 303 (Sub-No. 51X)] Wisconsin Central Ltd.— Discontinuance of Service Exemption—in Trempealeau and Buffalo Counties, Wis.

See 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2)(i). 2 The filing fee for OFAs can be found at 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). 3 Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be an environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does not require environmental review. E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1
