This notice includes revisions of OMB-approved information collections.

2. Epidemiological Research Report—20 CFR 401.165—0960-0701. Section 311 of the Social Security Independence and Program Improvements Act of 1994 directs SSA to support health researchers involved in epidemiological research. Specifically, when we determine a study contributes to a national health interest, SSA furnishes information to determine if a study subject appears in SSA administrative records as alive or deceased (vital status). SSA charges a small fee per request for providing this information. Web-posted questions solicit the information SSA needs to provide the data and to collect the fees. The respondents are qualified health and scientific researchers who are applying to receive vital status information about individuals from Social Security administrative data records.

Disability Report—Child—20 CFR 416.912—0960-0577. Sections 223(d)(5)(A) and 1631(e)(1) of the Social Security Act (Act) require SSI claimants to furnish medical and other evidence to prove they are disabled. SSA uses Form SSA-3820 to collect various types of information about a child's condition from treating sources or other medical sources of evidence. State Disability Determination Services evaluators use the information from Form SSA-3820 to develop medical and school evidence, and to assess the alleged disability. The information, together with medical evidence, forms the evidentiary basis upon which SSA makes its initial disability evaluation. The respondents are claimants seeking SSI childhood disability payments.
