Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments

    Summary: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 
an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to 
request a revision to the following collection of information: 3220-
0198, Request for Internet Services. 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 uses a Personal Identification Number (PIN)/Password system 
that allows RRB customers to conduct business with the agency 
electronically. As part of the system, the RRB collects information 
needed to establish a unique PIN/Password that allows customer access 
to RRB Internet-based services. The information collected is matched 
against records of the railroad employee that are maintained by the 
RRB. If the information is verified, the request is approved and the 
RRB mails a Password Request Code (PRC) to the requestor. If the 
information provided cannot be verified, the requestor is advised to 
contact the nearest field office of the RRB to resolve the discrepancy. 
Once a PRC is obtained from the RRB, the requestor can apply for a PIN/
Password online. Once the PIN/Password has been established, the 
requestor has access to RRB Internet-based services. The RRB estimates 
that approximately 14,040 requests for PRC's and 14,040 PIN/Passwords 
are established annually and that it takes 5 minutes per response to 
secure a PRC and 1.5 minutes to establish a PIN/Password. Two responses 
are requested of each respondent and completion is voluntary.
    However, the RRB will be unable to provide a PRC or allow a 
requestor to establish a PIN/Password (thereby denying system access), 
if the requests are not completed. The RRB proposes non-burden 
impacting, editorial changes to the PRC and PIN/Password screens.
    The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information 
to determine (1) the practical utility of the collection; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance

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 RRB or OIRA must 
contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of 
your comments, it is best if RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days 
of publication date.

initial 60-day notice (72 FR 13828 on March 23, 2007) required by 44
