Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. • Rule 17Ac2–2 and Form TA–2; OMB Control No. 3235–0337; SEC File No. 270–298 Rule 17Ac2–2 (17 CFR 240.17Ac2–2) and Form TA–2 (17 CFR 249b.102) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (17 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) require transfer agents to file an annual report of their business activities with the Commission. The amount of time needed to comply with the requirements of Rule 17Ac2–2 and Form TA–2 varies. From the total 786 registered transfer agents, approximately 197 registrants PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 would be required to complete only Questions 1 through 4 and the signature section of amended Form TA–2, which the Commission estimates would take each registrant about 30 minutes, for a total burden of 99 hours (197 × .5 hours). Approximately 262 registrants would be required to answer Questions 1 through 5, 10, and 11 and the signature section, which the Commission estimates would take about 1 hour and 30 minutes, for a total of 393 hours (262 × 1.5 hours). The remaining registrants, approximately 327, would be required to complete the entire Form TA–2, which the Commission estimates would take about 6 hours, for a total of 1,962 hours (327 × 6 hours). We estimate that the total burden would be 2,454 hours (99 hours + 393 hours + 1,962 hours). We estimate that the total cost of reviewing and entering the information reported on the Forms TA–2 for respondents is $31.50 per hour. The Commission estimates that the total cost would be $77,301.00 annually ($31.50 × 2,454). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication.

provide RRB with information in its possession that RRB may require for 
the purposes of making a timely determination of the amount of

indicator, civil service FICA covered month indicator, and civil 
service total service months. The RRB will match the Social Security

records that are matched, the RRB will extract the civil service 
payment information.
