The Social Security Administration (SSA) Permissions Consent History file summarizes available information relating to the status of social security permissions for HRS respondents. The data set contains summary information by wave for permissions requested from 1992 through 2020. HRS constructed status variables (described in the Data Description) for each wave in which respondents were asked to grant HRS access to earnings and benefits held by the SSA.
