The Social Security Administration (SSA) publishes a list of information collection packages requiring clearance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in compliance with Public Law (Pub. L.) 104-13, the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, effective October 1, 1995. This notice includes extensions of OMB-approved information collections.

1. Beneficiary Recontact Report—20 CFR 404.703 and 404.705—0960-0536. Studies show that payees of children receiving Social Security benefits who marry fail to report the marriage. Therefore, SSA periodically determines eligibility for benefits for children ages 15 through 17 by asking for information about marital status using Form SSA-1587-OCR-SM. SSA uses the information to detect overpayments and avoid continuing payment to those no longer entitled. Respondents are representative payees for children ages 15 through 17.

Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information collection.

Number of Respondents: 982,357.

Frequency of Response: 1.

Average Burden per Response: 3 minutes.

SSA sends records custodians the SSA-L707 on behalf of individuals who need help obtaining evidence of death, marriage, or divorce in connection with claims for benefits. SSA uses the information from the SSA-L707 to determine eligibility for benefits. The respondents are records custodians including statistics and religious entities, coroners, funeral directors, attending physicians, and state agencies.
