SSA engages in various forms of data exchanges from Social Security number verifications to computer matches for benefit eligibility, depending on the requestor's business needs. Section 1106 of the Social Security Act requires we consider the requestor's legal authority to receive the data, our disclosure policies, systems' feasibility, systems' security, and costs before entering into a data exchange agreement. We will use Form SSA-157, Data Exchange Request Form, for this purpose. Respondents are Federal, State, local, and foreign governments, as well as private organizations seeking to share data electronically with SSA.

Miscellaneous Actions
When we last cleared this IC in 2018, the burden was 73 hours. However, we are currently reporting a burden of 160 hours. This change stems from an increase in respondents requesting to use Form SSA-157. In addition, there has been an increase in the burden time per response by 15 minutes to allow for respond corrections after SSA initial review.
