The Social Security Administration has issued a new version of the SSA-1696 authorized representative form. The new form includes two new supplements: SUP 1 Claimant’s Revocation of the Appointment of a Representative and SUP 2 Representative’s Withdrawal of the Acceptance of an Appointment. The new form also allows registered authorized representatives to use their Representative Identification number instead of the claimant’s social security number.
All users must discontinue using the old SSA-1696 form. New forms are not required for appointments that are already in effect. (EM 20004, February 7, 2020.)
