The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on October 7, 2020.3 On November 4, 2020, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,4 the Commission designated a longer period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change.5 On December 21, 2020, FINRA filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.6 On December 30, 2020, the Commission 20 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).

The Commission may extend the period for issuing an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change, however, by not more than 60 days if the Commission determines that a longer period is appropriate and publishes the reasons for such determination. The proposed rule change was published for notice and comment in the Federal Register on October 7, 2020.9 April 5, 2021 is 180 days from that date, and June 4, 2021 is 240 days from that date.

Internal Revenue Service regulations require employers to provide wage and tax data to SSA using Form W–2, or its electronic equivalent. As part of this process, the employer must furnish the employee’s name and Social Security number (SSN). In addition, the employee’s name and SSN must match SSA’s records for SSA to post earnings to the employee’s earnings record, which SSA maintains.

Statement of Living Arrangements, In-Kind Support, and Maintenance—20 CFR 416.1130–416.1148—0960–0174. SSA determines Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment amounts based on applicants’ and recipients’ needs.

There is no actual charge to respondents to complete the application. 2. Modified Benefit Formula Questionnaire—Foreign Pension—0960– 0561. SSA applies the Windfall Elimination Provision, a modified benefit formula used to compute U.S. Social Security benefits for people entitled to both a pension or annuity based on employment after 1956 not covered by U.S. Social Security (that is, a ‘non-covered pension) and a U.S. Social Security retirement or disability insurance benefit. A non-covered pension is a pension paid by an employer that does not withhold Social Security taxes from the employee’s VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:45 Apr 08, 2021 Jkt 253001 salaries; these are typically state and local governments or foreign country employers. SSA uses the information collected on Form SSA–308 to determine exactly how much (if any) of a foreign pension we may use to reduce the amount of Title II Social Security retirement or disability benefits under the modified benefit formula. Respondents complete Form SSA–308 during the initial claims process if they indicate they will receive a foreign pension. A claimant who later receives a foreign pension must notify SSA and complete the SSA–308 again. The PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 respondents are applicants for Title II Social Security, or disability benefits who are first eligible for a foreign pension after 1985, and who are entitled, or will be entitled, to a foreign pension based on an application filed with the appropriate foreign agency or employer.

Eric Lowman, Acting Reports Clearance Officer, Office of Legislative Development and Operations, Social Security Administration. Alabama Southern Railroad, L.L.C. (ABS), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.41 to continue to lease from The Kansas City Southern Railway Company (KCS) and operate approximately 85.6 miles of rail lines extending between: (1) Milepost 17.0 near Columbus, Miss., and milepost 78.9 at Tuscaloosa, Ala. (the Tuscaloosa Subdivision); (2) milepost 0.0 at Tuscaloosa and milepost 9.3 near Fox, Ala. (the Warrior Branch); and (3) milepost 443.5 at Brookwood Junction, Ala., and milepost 429.1 at Brookwood, Ala. (the Brookwood Branch) (collectively, the Lines). According to the verified notice, ABS has leased and operated the Lines since 2005.1 ABS states that it has entered into an amendment of the lease agreement governing the Lines, which will extend the term of the lease until November 30, 2034. ABS states that it will continue to be the operator of the Lines. According to ABS, the amended lease between ABS and KCS contains an interchange commitment that affects interchange with carriers other than KCS.2 The affected interchanges are with Alabama & Gulf Coast Railway (AGR), BNSF Railway Company (BNSF), and Columbus & Greenville Railway (CAGR) at Columbus; 3 Norfolk Southern Railway Company at Tuscaloosa; and CSX Transportation, Inc., at Brookwood. As required under 49 CFR 1150.43(h), ABS provided additional information regarding the interchange commitment. ABS has certified that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in ABS becoming a Class II or Class I rail carrier, but that its projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million. Pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.42(e), if a carrier’s projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million, it must, at least 60 days before this exemption is to become effective, post a notice of its intent to undertake the proposed transaction at the workplace of the employees on the affected lines, serve a copy of the notice on the national offices of the labor unions with employees on the affected lines, and certify to the Board that it has done so. However, ABS, concurrently with its verified notice of exemption, filed a petition for waiver of the 60-day advance labor notice requirement. ABS’s waiver request will be addressed in a separate decision. The Board will establish the effective date of the exemption in its separate decision on the waiver request. If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than April 16, 2021. All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36353, should be filed with the 1 ABS was granted authority to lease and operate the Lines in Alabama Southern Railroad—Lease & Operation Exemption—Kansas City Southern Railway, FD 34754 (STB served Dec. 2, 2005).

See 49 CFR 1150.43(h)(1). 3 ABS states that the potential connection with AGR, BNSF, and CAGR at Columbus exists on a KCS-owned segment of railroad line that ABS does not lease (and will not be leasing pursuant to the present transaction), but over which ABS operates strictly for purposes of effecting interchange with KCS at Artesia, Miss.

* We based this figure on average DI payments based on SSA's current FY 2021 data (https://www.ssa.gov/legislation/2021FactSheet.pdf).
** We based this figure on the average FY 2020 wait times for field offices, based on SSA's current management information data.
*** This figure does not represent actual costs that SSA is imposing on recipients of Social Security payments to complete this application; rather,
  these are theoretical opportunity costs for the additional time respondents will spend to complete the application. There is no actual charge to
  respondents to complete the application.

    2. Modified Benefit Formula Questionnaire--Foreign Pension--0960-
0561. SSA applies the Windfall Elimination Provision, a modified 
benefit formula used to compute U.S. Social Security benefits for 
people entitled to both a pension or annuity based on employment after 
1956 not covered by U.S. Social Security (that is, a `non-covered 
pension) and a U.S. Social Security retirement or disability insurance 
benefit. A non-covered pension is a pension paid by an employer that 
does not withhold Social Security taxes from the employee's salaries; 
these are typically state and local governments or foreign country 
employers. SSA uses the information collected on Form SSA-308 to 
determine exactly how much (if any) of a foreign pension we may use to 
reduce the amount of Title II Social Security retirement or disability 
benefits under the modified benefit formula. Respondents complete Form 
SSA-308 during the initial claims process if they indicate they will 
receive a foreign pension. A claimant who later receives a foreign 
pension must notify SSA and complete the SSA-308 again. The respondents 
are applicants for Title II Social Security, or disability benefits who 
are first eligible for a foreign pension after 1985, and who are 
entitled, or will be entitled, to a foreign pension based on an 
application filed with the appropriate foreign agency or employer.
    This is a correction notice: SSA published the incorrect burden 
information for this collection at 86 FR 7447, on 1/28/21. We are 
providing the correct burden here.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
