Subpart D prescribes regulations on who may file appeals, when and where to file appeals, contents of appeals, and other matters relating to appeals. Most appeals filed with the PBGC are filed by individuals (participants, beneficiaries, and alternate payees) in connection with benefit entitlement or amounts. A small number of appeals are filed by employers in connection with other matters, such as plan coverage under ERISA section 4021 or employer liability under ERISA sections 4062 (b) (1), 4063, or 4064. Appeals may be filed by hand, mail, commercial delivery service, fax or e-mail.

The PBGC is requesting that OMB approve this collection of information for three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The PBGC estimates that an average of 850 appellants per year will respond to this collection of information. The PBGC further estimates that the average annual burden of this collection of information is 0.75 hours and $55 per appellant, with an average total annual burden of 640 hours and $46,750.

The Commission plans to submit these existing collections of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. The collection of information is entitled: ‘‘Rule 30e–1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, Reports to Stockholders of Management Companies.’’ Section 30(e) (15 U.S.C. 80a–29(e)) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (‘‘Investment Company Act’’) (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) requires a registered investment company (‘‘fund’’) to transmit to its shareholders, at least semi-annually, reports containing information and financial statements as the Commission may prescribe. Among other requirements, Rule 30e–1 (17 CFR 270.30e–1) under the Investment Company Act directs funds to include in the shareholder reports the information that is required by the fund’s registration statement. Failure to require the collection of this information would seriously impede the amount of current information available to shareholders and the public about funds and would prevent the Commission from implementing the regulatory program required by statute. The estimated annual number of respondents providing shareholder reports under Rule 30e–1 is 4,040. The proposed frequency of response is semiannual. The estimate of the total annual reporting burden of the collection of information is approximately 145.8 hours per shareholder report and the total estimated annual burden for the industry is 1,178,064 hours (145.8 hours per report × 2 reports × 4,040 funds). Providing the information required by Rule 30e–1 is mandatory. Responses will not be kept confidential.
