The value of an individual's resources, including non-home real property, is one of the eligibility requirements for SSI payments. SSA obtains current market value estimates of the claimant's real property through Form SSA-L2794. The respondents are small business operators in real estate, state and local employees, and other individuals knowledgeable about local real estate values.
3. Employer Verification of Earnings After Death--20 CFR 404.821 and 404.822--0960-0472. When SSA records show a wage earner is deceased and an employer reported wages for the wage earner for a year subsequent to death, SSA must contact the employer and verify the reported wage and employee information. SSA uses Form SSA-L4112 to verify that the wage information the employer previously submitted is correct for the employee and the year in question. The respondents are employers who report wages for employees who have died.
