Reduced benefits are to payable to an already entitled spouse, at least age 62 but under full retirement age, who no longer has a child in their care unless the spouse elects to receive reduced benefits. If spouses decide to elect reduced benefits, they complete Form SSA-25. SSA uses the information to pay qualified spouses who elect to receive reduced benefits. Respondents are entitled spouses seeking reduced benefits.

When we last cleared this IC in 2018, the burden was 1,000 hours. However, we are currently reporting a burden of 6,500 hours. This change stems from an increase in the completion time from 2 minutes to 13 minutes, as we determined it takes longer to read and fill out the form. These figures represent current Management Information data.
