Protecting the Public and Our Personnel To Ensure Operational 
Effectiveness (RIN 0960-AH35), Regulation 3729I--20 CFR 422.905, 
422.906--0960-0796.

Background

    On September 2, 2011, the agency published interim final 
regulations and notifications processes for the restrictive access and 
alternative service process at 76 FR 54700. These regulations explain 
the process we follow when we restrict individuals from receiving in-
person services in our field offices and provide them, instead, with 
alternative services. We published these rules to create a safer 
environment for our personnel and members of the public who use our 
facilities, while ensuring we continue to serve the American people 
with as little disruption to our operations as possible.
    Under our regulations at 20 CFR 422.905, an individual whom we 
restrict access to our facilities has the opportunity to appeal our 
decision within 60 days of the date of the restrictive access and 
alternative service notice. Under 20 CFR 422.906, if the individual 
does not appeal the decision within the 60 days; if we restrict the 
individual prior to the effective date of this regulation; or if the 
appeal results in a denial, the individual has another opportunity to 
request review of the restriction after a three-year period. We make 
this periodic review available to all restricted individuals once every 
three years.

Information Collection Description

    The interim final restrictive access and alternative services rules 
contain two public reporting burdens:
     20 CFR 422.905--after SSA issues a restrictive access and 
alternative service decision against an individual, the individual has 
60 days to appeal the determination. Restricted individuals must submit 
a written appeal stating why they believe SSA should rescind the 
restriction and allow them to conduct business with us on a face-to-
face basis in one of our offices. There is no printed form for this 
request; restricted individuals create their own written statement of 
appeal, and submit it to a sole decision-maker in the regional office 
of the region where the restriction originated. The individuals may 
also provide additional documentation to support their appeal.
     20 CFR 422.906--three years after the original restrictive 
access and alternative service decision, restricted individuals may re-
submit a written appeal of the decision. The same criteria apply as for 
the original appeal: (1) It must be in writing; (2) it must go to a 
sole decision-maker in the regional office of the region where the 
restriction originated for review; and (3) it may accompany supporting 
documentation.
    Respondents for this collection are individuals appealing their 
restrictions from in-person services at SSA field offices.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    II. SSA submitted the information collection below to OMB for 
clearance. Your comments regarding the information collection would be 
most useful if OMB and SSA receive them 30 days from the date of this 
publication. To be sure we consider your comments, we must receive them 
no later than November 23, 2015. Individuals can obtain copies of the 
OMB clearance packages by writing to [email protected].
    Statement of Household Expenses and Contributions--20 CFR 416.1130-
416.1148--0960-0456. SSA bases eligibility for Supplemental Security 
Income (SSI) on the needs of the recipient. In part, we assess need by 
determining the amount of income a recipient receives. This income 
includes in-kind support and maintenance in the form of food and 
shelter provided by others. SSA uses Form SSA-8011-F3, to determine 
whether the claimant or recipient receives in-kind support and 
maintenance. This is necessary to determine (1) the claimant or 
recipient's eligibility for SSI and (2) the SSI payment amount. SSA 
only uses this form in cases where SSA needs the householder's (head of 
household) corroboration of in-kind support and maintenance. 
Respondents are householders of homes in which an SSI applicant or 
recipient resides
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
