The ID–5S(SUP) is generated annually when the computer match indicates that an employee(s) of the railroad employer was paid unemployment or sickness benefits for every day in one or more months for which creditable compensation was adjusted due to the receipt of a report of creditable compensation adjustment (RRB FORM BA–4, OMB Approved 3220–0008) from their railroad employer.

To our knowledge no other agency uses forms similar to Form ID– 5S(SUP). Completion is voluntary. One response is requested of each respondent. The RRB estimates that 80 responses are received annually. The RRB proposes non-burden impacting editorial changes to Form ID–5S(SUP) and Form ID–5S.

RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

    Summary: In accordance with the requirement of Section 
3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 which provides 
opportunity for public comment on new or revised data collections, the 
Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed data collections.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information 
collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; 
(b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection 
of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize 
the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Title and purpose of information collection: Investigation of Claim 
for Possible Days of Employment; OMB 3220-0196. Under Section 1(k) of 
the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), unemployment and 
sickness benefits are not payable for any day with respect to which 
remuneration is payable or accrues to the claimant. Also Section 4(a-1) 
of the RUIA provides that unemployment or sickness benefits are not 
payable for any day the claimant receives the same benefits under any 
law other than the RUIA. Under Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) 
regulations, 20 CFR 322.4(a), a

[[Page 8207]]

claimant's certification or statement on an RRB provided claim form 
that he or she did not work on any day claimed and did not receive 
income such as vacation pay or pay for time lost shall constitute 
sufficient evidence unless there is conflicting evidence. Further, 
under 20 CFR 322.4(b), when there is a question raised as to whether or 
not remuneration is payable or has accrued to a claimant with respect 
to a claimed day or days, investigation shall be made with a view to 
obtaining information sufficient for a finding.
    Form ID-5S(SUP), Report of Cases for Which All Days Were Claimed 
During a Month Credited Per an Adjustment Report, collects required 
information about compensation credited to an employee during a period 
when the employee claimed either unemployment or sickness benefits from 
a railroad employer. The request is generated as a result of a computer 
match that compares data which is maintained in the RRB's RUIA Benefit 
Payment file with data maintained in the RRB's records of service. The 
ID-5S(SUP) is generated annually when the computer match indicates that 
an employee(s) of the railroad employer was paid unemployment or 
sickness benefits for every day in one or more months for which 
creditable compensation was adjusted due to the receipt of a report of 
creditable compensation adjustment (RRB FORM BA-4, OMB Approved 3220-
0008) from their railroad employer.
    The computer generated Form ID-5S(SUP) includes pertinent 
identifying information, the BA-4 adjustment process date and the 
claimed months in question. Space is provided on the report for the 
employer's use in supplying the information requested in the computer 
generated transmittal letter, Form ID-5S, which accompanies the report. 
To our knowledge no other agency uses forms similar to Form ID-5S(SUP). 
Completion is voluntary. One response is requested of each respondent. 
The RRB estimates that 80 responses are received annually. The RRB 
proposes non-burden impacting editorial changes to Form ID-5S(SUP) and 
Form ID-5S.
    Additional Information or Comments: To request more information or 
to obtain a copy of the information collection justification, forms, 
and/or supporting material, please call the RRB Clearance Officer at 
(312) 751-3363 or send an e-mail request to Charles.Mierzwa@RRB.GOV. 
Comments regarding the information collection should be addressed to

Chicago, Illinois 60611-2092 or send an e-mail to 
Ronald.Hodapp@RRB.GOV. Written comments should be received within 60 
days of this notice.
