20 CFR 403.130 - What factors may the Commissioner consider in determining whether SSA will grant your application for testimony?
In deciding whether to authorize the testimony of an SSA employee, the Commissioner will consider applicable law and factors relating to your need and the burden to SSA. The considerations include, but are not limited to, the following:
(1) Would providing the testimony violate a statute (such as 26 U.S.C. 6103 or section 1106 of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 1306), Executive Order, or regulation (such as 20 CFR part 401)?
(1) Would granting the application unduly expend for private purposes the resources of the United States (including the time of SSA employees needed for official duties)?
