Use Electronic Records Express To Send School RecordsSSA Publication No. 05-10047, July 2006, ICN 460277 [View .pdf]
Electronic Records Express is an initiative by Social Security and state Disability Determination Services (DDS) to increase use of electronic options for submitting student records related to disability claims. If a state DDS or Social Security needs additional information from your school about a student who has filed a claim for Social Security disability, you will receive a letter asking for medical evidence or other information – such as the Teacher Questionnaire (Form SSA-5665) and the Request for Administrative Information (Form SSA-5666). The requested information helps the DDS and Social Security determine if the student qualifies for disability. You can choose the method of sending the information that works best for you.
Secure website — individual student records
Send electronic school records or scanned paper records through the Social Security secure website using your existing Internet connection.
Secure website — multiple student records
You can send batches of student files via the Social Security secure website in a single operation.
Use your office fax to send requested student records to your state DDS or to Social Security any time day or night. The digitized faxes go directly into the claims processing system.
Continued support for paper submissions
If you only can provide paper records, mail them to the Social Security contract scanning service whose mailing address is in the request letter. The contractor will scan the records and send electronic files to the state DDS or Social Security.
