SSA seeks comments on proposed information gathering activities

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The Social Security Administration is soliciting comments from the public regarding a number of information gathering activities that have already been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance.

Specifically, the SSA wants feedback on the need for the information solicited and its practical utility; the accuracy of the agency's burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the manner in which the information is collected; and ways to minimize the burden on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The information gathering activities for which comments are sought are listed in a notice in the September 25, 2020, Federal Register (85 Fed. Reg. 60509). Comments may be mailed or faxed to the addresses and numbers listed in the notice.
