II. Background In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C.

The title of the information collection: 48 CFR 20 U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR). 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0169. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number, if applicable: N/ A. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion, one time. 6.

Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collections of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collections; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Supplemental Information on Accident and Insurance; OMB 3220– 0036. Under Section 12(o) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is entitled to reimbursement of the sickness benefits paid to a railroad employee if the employee receives a sum or damages for the same infirmity for which the benefits are paid. Section 2(f) of the RUIA requires employers to reimburse the RRB for days in which salary, wages, pay for time lost or other remuneration is later determined to be payable. Reimbursements under section 2(f) generally result from the award of pay for time lost or the payment of guaranteed wages. The RUIA prescribes that the amount of benefits paid be deducted and held by the employer in a special fund for reimbursement to the RRB. The RRB currently utilizes Forms SI– 1c, Supplemental Information on Accident and Insurance; SI–5, Report of Payments to Employee Claiming Sickness Benefits Under the RUIA; ID– 3s and ID–3s (Internet), Request for Lien Information—Report of Settlement; ID– 3s-1, Lien Information Under Section 12(o) of the RUIA; ID–3u and ID–3u (Internet), Request for Section 2(f) Information; ID–30k, Notice to Request Supplemental Information on Injury or Illness; and ID–30k-1, Notice to Request Supplemental Information on Injury or Illness; to obtain the necessary information from claimants and railroad employers. Completion is required to obtain benefits. One response is requested of each respondent. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (82 FR 31108 on July 5, 2017) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments. Information Collection Request (ICR) Title: Supplemental Information on Accident and Insurance. OMB Control Number: 3220–0036. Form(s) submitted: SI–1c, SI–5, ID–3s, ID–3s (Internet), ID–3s.1, ID3u, ID–3u (Internet), ID–30k, and ID–30k.1. Type of request: Extension without change of a currently approved collection. Affected public: Individuals or Households. Abstract: The Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act provides for the recovery of sickness benefits paid if an employee receives a settlement for the same injury for which benefits were paid. The collection obtains information that is needed to determine the amount of the RRB’s reimbursement from the person or company responsible for such payments. Changes proposed: The RRB proposes no changes to the forms in the collection. The burden estimate for the ICR is as follows: Annual responses Form No. Time (minutes) Burden (hours) 475 7 4,000 2,000 3,000 400 200 55 65 5 5 3 3 3 3 3 5 5 40 1 200 100 150 20 10 5 5 Total ...................................................................................................................................... sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SI–1c ............................................................................................................................................

Title and Purpose of information collection: Pension Plan Reports; OMB 3220–0089. Under Section 2(b) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) pays supplemental annuities to qualified RRB employee annuitants. A supplemental annuity, which is computed according to Section 3(e) of the RRA, can be paid at age 60 if the employee has at least 30 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Sep 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 years of creditable railroad service or at age 65 if the employee has 25–29 years of railroad service. In addition to 25 years of service, a ‘‘current connection’’ with the railroad industry is required. Eligibility is further limited to employees who had at least 1 month of rail service before October 1981 and were awarded regular annuities after June 1966. Further, if an employee’s PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65th birthday was prior to September 2, 1981, he or she must not have worked in rail service after certain closing dates (generally the last day of the month following the month in which age 65 is attained).
