Document Number: 05-14385
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-07-21
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are issuing these final rules to reflect in our regulations four self-implementing provisions in the Social Security Protection Act of 2004 (SSPA). One provision adds two States (Kentucky and Louisiana) to a list of States that are permitted to divide public employee retirement systems based on whether the State and/or local employees in positions under the systems want Social Security and/or Medicare coverage or not. The other three provisions make technical corrections to the Social Security Act (the Act) and the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) regarding various Social Security coverage issues.

This notice provides information about the continuing education requirement that non-attorney representatives must satisfy to participate in the 5-year demonstration project on direct payment of fees to non-attorneys under section 303 of the Social Security Protection Act of 2004 (SSPA). The notice also announces that we have lowered the liability insurance requirements for participants and determined that applicants will be given an opportunity to correct defects in their applications to participate in the demonstration project, in certain circumstances; to protest a denial of their applications for any reason; and, where warranted, to have their paid application fee refunded or applied to satisfy the fee requirement for a subsequent application. The notice also clarifies the requirement regarding experience in representing claimants before SSA.
Technical Revisions to the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Regulations on Income and Resources
Document Number: 05-14050
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-07-18
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions

Rules for Helping Blind and Disabled Individuals Achieve Self-Support
Document Number: 05-13584
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-11
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are proposing to amend our regulations to implement section 203 of the Social Security Independence and Program Improvements Act of 1994. Section 203 of this law amended section 1633 of the Social Security Act to require us to establish by regulations criteria for time limits and other criteria related to plans to achieve self-support (PASS). The law requires that the time limits take into account the length of time that a person needs to achieve his or her employment goal, within a reasonable period, and other factors as determined by the Commissioner to be appropriate. A PASS allows some people who receive or are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits to set aside part of their income and/or resources to meet an employment goal. The income and/or resources set aside under a PASS will not be counted in determining the amount of the person's SSI payment or his or her eligibility.

The revisions reflect advances in medical knowledge, treatment, and methods of evaluating genitourinary impairments.

Document Number: 05-12432
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-06-24
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are publishing final rules that amend the rules for the continuation of disability benefit payments under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act) to certain individuals who recover medically while participating in an appropriate vocational rehabilitation (VR) program with a State vocational rehabilitation agency. We are amending these rules to conform with statutory amendments that extend eligibility for these continued benefit payments to certain individuals who recover medically while participating in an appropriate program of services. These include individuals participating in the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program or another program of vocational rehabilitation services, employment services, or other support services approved by the Commissioner of Social Security. We are also extending eligibility for these continued benefit payments to students age 18 through 21 who recover medically, or whose disability is determined to have ended as a result of an age- 18 redetermination, while participating in an individualized education program developed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act with an appropriate provider of services. Providers of services we may approve include a public or private organization with expertise in the delivery or coordination of vocational rehabilitation services, employment services, or other support services; or a public, private or parochial school that provides or coordinates a program of vocational rehabilitation services, employment services, or other support services carried out under an individualized program or plan.

Evidentiary Requirements for Making Findings About Medical Equivalence
Document Number: 05-11886
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-17
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise our regulations that pertain to the processing of claims for disability benefits under title II and title XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act). The proposed revisions would make the language in the rules we use under title II of the Act for making findings about medical equivalence consistent with the language in the rules that we use under title XVI of the Act. The proposed revisions would also clarify our rules about the evidence we use when we make findings about medical equivalence for adults and children. We also propose to update and clarify our rules that explain the Listing of Impairments (the listings) and how your impairment(s) can meet a listing.
Extension of the Expiration Date for Several Body System Listings
Document Number: 05-11887
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-06-16
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We use the Listing of Impairments (the listings) at the third step of the sequential evaluation process when we evaluate your claim for benefits based on disability under title II and title XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act). This final rule extends until July 3, 2006, the date on which listings for four body systems will no longer be effective and extends until July 2, 2007, the date on which the listings for eight body systems will no longer be effective. Other than extending the date during which the listings will be effective, we have made no revisions to the listings; they remain the same as they now appear in the Code of Federal Regulations. This extension will ensure that we continue to have the medical evaluation criteria in the listings to adjudicate disability claims in these body systems at step three of the sequential evaluation process.
Privacy Act of 1974; as Amended; New System of Records and New Routine Use Disclosures
Document Number: 05-11745
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-06-14
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (e)(11)), we are issuing public notice of our intent to establish a new system of records entitled, the National Docketing Management Information System (NDMIS) and routine uses applicable to this system of records. Hereinafter, we will refer to the proposed system of records as the NDMIS. We invite public comments on this proposal.
Work Activity of Persons Working as Members of Advisory Committees Established Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA)
Document Number: 05-11074
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-03
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are proposing to revise our disability regulations under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act to incorporate a new, special rule that would affect individuals who are receiving payments or providing services as members or consultants of a committee, board, commission, council or similar group established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). Under this special rule, we would not count any earnings an individual is receiving from serving as a member or consultant of a FACA advisory committee when we determine if the individual is engaging in substantial gainful activity under titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act (the Act). In addition, we would not evaluate any of the services the individual is providing as a member or consultant of the FACA advisory committee when determining if the individual has engaged in substantial gainful activity under titles II and XVI of the Act. Based on our experience with FACA advisory committees and the frequency and level of activity required by these committees, we believe that performance of activity on these committees does not demonstrate the ability to perform substantial gainful activity. We believe this to be consistent with Congress's view as it has recognized in creating the Ticket to Work advisory committee, for example, that current disability beneficiaries should be considered for membership. This also will encourage individuals with disabilities to serve on FACA advisory committees, thereby providing the benefit of their unique perspective on policies and programs to the Federal Government.

Hereinafter, we will refer to the proposed system of records as the RP/MRCS. We invite public comments on this proposal.

It eliminates the Social Security annual earnings test for retirement beneficiaries, starting from the month in which they reach full retirement age.

The proposed regulations would set forth prohibitions and prior approval requirements for certain outside employment and other outside activities for all SSA employees, except special Government employees, and would set forth additional prior approval requirements for SSA Administrative Law Judges. To allow the public additional time to send us comments, we are reopening the comment period.

Document Number: 05-7353
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-04-13
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise our regulations to identify additional bases upon which we may bring charges to disqualify an individual from acting as a representative before the Social Security Administration (SSA), and to set forth the conditions under which we will reinstate an individual whom we have disqualified as a representative because the individual collected or received, and retains, a fee in excess of the amount we authorized. These proposed rules revise our regulations on the representation of parties to implement section 205 of the Social Security Protection Act of 2004 (SSPA) and to make additional changes in these regulations that relate to the changes required by this legislation. The rules also propose three technical changes in our regulations on the representation of parties. DATES: To be sure that we consider your comments, we must receive them by June 13, 2005.

Civil Monetary Penalties, Assessments and Recommended Exclusions
Document Number: 05-5717
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-03-23
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with legislative changes, we propose to add new rules that would amend current procedures for the Social Security Administration's civil monetary penalty cases. These proposed rules would amend the current rules by holding representative payees liable for the wrongful conversion of Social Security benefits and by adding a provision for withholding disclosure of material statements to the Social Security Administration. These proposed rules would also amend the current rules by prohibiting offers that charge fees for products or services otherwise provided free of charge by the Social Security Administration, unless sufficient notice is provided, and by adding to the list of enumerated terms that could be used as part of misleading advertisements. These revisions reflect provisions of the Social Security Protection Act of 2004. These proposed rules would also reflect the addition of title VIII, Special Benefits for Certain World War II Veterans, to the Social Security Act, to subject individuals to the possible imposition of a civil monetary penalty and assessment for a violation of this title. These revisions reflect provisions of the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999.

Document Number: 05-4638
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-03-10
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We are amending our rules on wage credits for veterans and members of the uniformed services. The revisions are required by the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2002 and the Social Security Protection Act of 2004. The enactments changed a Social Security Act requirement providing deemed military wage credits for service as members of the uniformed services on active duty or active duty for training beginning in 1957 (when that service was first covered for Social Security purposes on a contributory basis). The provisions provide for the termination of such deemed military wage credits effective with military wages earned after December 31, 2001. The wage credits will continue to be given for periods prior to calendar year 2002.
Medicare Part D Subsidies
Document Number: 05-4097

Date: 2005-03-04
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to add to our regulations a new part 418 to contain rules that we will apply when we evaluate applications for premium and cost-sharing subsidies under the Medicare program. We propose to include a new subpart D, Medicare Part D Subsidies, to this part. This new subpart would contain the rules that we use to determine eligibility for premium and cost-sharing subsidies under the Medicare Part D program, which was added by the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (Medicare Modernization Act). These proposed rules would describe: what the new subpart is about; how we determine whether you are eligible for premium and cost- sharing subsidies; how we redetermine your eligibility for a subsidy; how you apply for a subsidy; how we evaluate your income and resources; when your eligibility for premium and cost-sharing subsidies terminates; how you may report changes in your circumstances; and how you can appeal a determination we make under the Part D subsidy program.

The proposed alterations will result in the following changes to these two systems of records: (1) Expansion of the categories of individuals covered by the systems to include former beneficiaries and representative payees of Social Security payments and former recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments who received an overpayment and owe a delinquent debt to the SSA; (2) Expansion of the purposes for which SSA uses information maintained in the systems; and (3) A proposed new routine use disclosure in each system providing for the release of information to employers to assist SSA in collecting delinquent debts owed to the Agency from the disposable pay of the debtors described above. All of the proposed alterations are discussed in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. We invite public comment on this proposal.
