The IRES System registers and authenticates individuals, businesses, organizations, entities and government agencies to use the eService Internet and telephone applications for requesting and exchanging business data with SSA, and issues them a User Identification Number (User ID) and a Password. This process will verify the identity of individuals who use SSA’s Business Services Online. Respondents are employers and third party submitters of wage data, business entities providing tax payer identification information and data exchange partners conducting business in support of SSA programs.

  Total Approved Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 16,324,442 9,895,153 0 0 6,429,289 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 577,806 366,478 0 0 211,328 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 0 0 0 0 0 0
When we cleared this IC in 2015, the burden was 366,478 hours. However, we are currently reporting a burden of 577,806 hours. This change stems from the increase in the total number of respondents using the Internet screens. There is no change to the burden time per response. Although the number of responses changed, SSA did not take any actions to cause this change. In addition, we had a small burden decrease in the number of individuals registering for both the Internet and CSA screens. See #12 above for updated burden figures.
