Semiannual Unified Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Social Security Administration.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

SUMMARY: We are publishing our fall 2011 regulatory agenda pursuant to Executive Order 12866 "Regulatory Planning and Review," 58 FR 51735 (1993), and the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. sections 601 to 612.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Please direct all general comments and inquiries to the Office of Retirement and Disability Policy, Social Security Administration, 6401 Security Boulevard, Room 107, Altmeyer Building, Baltimore, Maryland 21235. For comments on specific regulatory actions, please contact the person identified as the point of contact for that action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The information provided in the Unified Agenda (Agenda) previews the rulemaking activities that we expect to undertake in the immediate future. The agenda focuses primarily on those actions expected to result in publication of Notices of Proposed Rulemaking or final rules within the next 12 months. At this time, we have no regulatory actions that are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

The most significant regulatory actions, as well as a Statement of Regulatory Priorities, are included in our 2011 Regulatory Plan, which appears in both the online Unified Agenda and in the Federal Register. You can view a fully searchable e-Agenda in its entirety at www.reginfo.gov.

Our fall 2011 agenda follows.

Dated: September 16, 2011.
