Certification of Low Birth Weight for SSI Eligibility—20 CFR 416.931, 416.926a (m) (7) & (8) and 416.924—0960-NEW
Form SSA-3830 is designed to assist hospitals and claimants who file on behalf of low birth weight infants in providing local field offices (FOs) and Disability Determination Services (DDSs) with medical information for determining disability of low birth weight infants. FOs use the forms as protective filing statements, and the medical information for making presumptive disability findings, which allow expedited payment to eligible claimants. DDSs use the medical information to formally determine disability and to establish the most appropriate continuing disability review diaries. The respondents are hospitals that have information identifying low birth weight babies and medical conditions those babies may have. We estimate it will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete the form. Below, we use the higher number for our public burden computation.
Type of Request: New information collection.
Number of Respondents: 24,000.
Frequency of Response: 1
Average Burden Per Response: 15 minutes.
Estimated Annual Burden: 6,000 hours.Start Signature
